Let’s talk about periods!

Language is very important in contributing to and tackling the stigma and shame around periods. Using language like 'sanitary' or 'hygiene' when we talk about periods implies that they are dirty, or something to be embarrassed about. They’re not.

As the Girlguiding Advocate panel, we’re asking you to join us in pledging to tackle shame and stigma associated with periods. Periods are normal, not shameful!

Sign up to this pledge to make a positive commitment for change:

"I pledge to tackle period stigma by talking openly about periods, so that no one feels embarrassed talking about them."

Thank you!
