This panel discussion brings together activists and experts who are paving the way for menstruation justice. Join us and #FreeTheFlow!

About this event

Promoting menstrual equity to confront the challenging reality of period poverty is key to supporting women and people with periods. Like so many global issues, period poverty impacts all pillars of sustainability - economic, environmental, social, & cultural.

In order to work toward a fairer and more equal world for all, we need to understand period poverty from each of these angles and their intersections.

During this panel event, you’ll get to hear from experts and insiders from Ireland and around the world who will share their insights about the nature of period poverty and what we can do to support those dealing with it.

Our guests include:

Abi O’Callaghan-Platt of VOICE Ireland

Lama Naja of PLAN International, based in Lebanon

Maryam Yabo and Aishah Akorede of Recrowned Ireland

Anne Holmes, Development Specialist at the Department of Foreign Affairs

We want you to take local action for global change, ensuring that women & menstruators around the world are empowered rather than burdened every time their period comes around. The #FreetheFlow campaign will introduce us to the barriers to menstruation justice and explore the ways we can break them down. When you join us and take the pledge we’ll send you a list of ways to be a period activist, a flow fighter, a bloody revolutionary!
