We, as Girlguiding Advocates, believe that language is very important in contributing to, and tackling stigma and shame around periods. By using language like 'sanitary' or 'hygiene' when we talk about periods we imply that they are dirty, or something to be embarrassed about. 

We are asking our Girlguiding members across the UK to take our pledge and tackle shame and stigma associated with periods. We believe periods are normal, not shameful! 

Sign up to the pledge below to make a commitment to challenge period stigma! 

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