Are you aware of period poverty in our city?
The Department for Education has pledged to fully fund the supply of sanitary products in secondary and primary schools in an effort to eradicate period poverty, which results in girls from low-income families missing school because they cannot afford sanitary protection, according to campaigners.
Two local ladies have been providing these products for a long time to our city’s children and will continue to do so until next year. Their story and actions will warm your heart!
In this weeks podcast we discuss the severity of period poverty, how to talk to young girls about periods, address the need for men to acknowledge that periods are not something to be ashamed of and how we should bring dads into the conversation! Hear all about pads for dads and let’s stop hiding our period products and embrace our time of the month!
