OPEN ARMS. OPEN MINDS.
We're a student-run
organisation working towards equality in
opportunities, with a focus on putting a 'Period' to Menstrual Inequity
History has it's eyes on you.
Be the turn of this century. Be the voice of change.
Prevailing Taboo and Myths
Shrouded in a culture of silence and shame, you always hear the word 'Period' in a chastened tone. When will we stop viewing Menstruation as 'dirty' and 'impure' and celebrate it for the natural phenomena that it is?
Lack of Access to Menstrual Products
How is it fair that girls have to choose between an education they need and deserve, or going to school using primitive and horrific alternatives such as old rags and newspapers?
One plastic sanitary pad could take upto 800 years to decompose, leading to both health and environmental hazards. Do the math, you can see why this is a critical issue that needs immediate solutions.
Awareness, Action, and Advocacy
Our work highlights SDG Goals 4, 5, 6 and 8. We focus on putting a FullStopp to Menstrual Inequity, Period poverty and Gender Inequality.
