Welcome to Period Talk. We have designed and created a space for the harsh realities of menstruation to be talked about candidly, and in real time. This website, along with our social media accounts, is dedicated to raising awareness of period poverty and helping the world to understand what this means, in all settings.
“Why were we raised to speak in low tones about periods?” Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Another aspect of this site is dedicated to the hard work of so many charities that are working tirelessly to help overcome this global crisis. We have chosen to share the work we have done, are actively doing, and what we wish to achieve, as well as offering ways for you to support and help eradicate period poverty. Though we are not a charity, our mission is to normalise the conversation in order to see more changes. Therefore, we have left the web links for many charities over on the ‘Action’ segment of this site for you to explore, learn, and help in your own way.
We hope to share stories and truths in order to achieve our goal of normalising period talk. We believe that this is the first step in the right direction towards creating better period experiences for all.
This site will comprise of monthly topics which will be covered through blogs and conversations across our social media platforms. We have fun challenges planned to help spread awareness of period poverty and to normalise period talk. We will also be posting recipes of the month- these are another great way to get involved. All of what we hope to achieve will be inclusive for everyone so please follow our social media accounts, message us and get in touch with ideas for blog posts or recipes.
We would like to thank you for taking your first step in helping to change the way the world sees periods by joining us in talking about them.
