Visiting speaker from No More Taboo raises the issue of period poverty.




Share
Senior Event


A visiting speaker from the charity No More Taboo came to speak to the students of Westonbirt last week on the subject of period poverty. 

It was delivered by Holly Van Dyke, their director of fundraising and development, whose talk was about the stigma and taboo attached to periods across the world, and the impact this can have. The charity is dedicated to tackling the issue of period poverty in the UK, where vulnerable women and girls may not have access to sanitary products.

No more taboo is dedicated to tackling both this issue and the issue of period sustainability across the world through education and fundraising.  Single-use sanitary products mount up over a lifetime of use, and an individual can produce tons of waste. No more taboo sells re-usable products to help tackle this issue with the environment at the heart of the issue.
