Breaking Barriers, Building Bridges:
A Conference on Menstrual Equity
Social, cultural, and religious taboos surrounding menstruation have a detrimental impact on women’s lives. Purple Feminists Group recognizes the importance of menstrual justice, which ensures equal access to menstrual products, education, and reproductive care for all women, regardless of socioeconomic status, age, or geographical location. Menstrual justice also emphasizes the normalization of menstruation within communities, promoting human dignity.
In line with these issues, Purple Feminists Group is proud to launch the Menstrual Justice Conference. The conference aims to facilitate panel discussions, concurrent workshops, and interactive activities that explore the intersection between menstrual equity, gender equality, and women’s empowerment. These engaging sessions will equip participants with practical skills and knowledge to advance menstrual justice within their communities and recognize the role of menstrual justice in achieving broader social and gender justice goals. Participants will also gain insight into the importance of sustainable menstrual products, which directly impact menstrual health, hygiene, education, and socioeconomic status.
The Menstrual Justice Conference provides a platform for participants to network, share experiences, and exchange resources related to menstrual justice. Taking place on October 14-15, the conference empowers participants to discuss challenges in achieving menstrual equity and advocate for the rights of menstruators, with support from guest speakers. Additionally, sub-workshop sessions will delve into topics such as menstrual education, sanitation, policy advocacy, and legal frameworks. As the conference concludes, participants will be encouraged to promote feminist literature in the local language and amplify women’s and girls’ voices through podcasts and artwork.
The Menstrual Justice Conference offers a unique opportunity to foster dialogue, knowledge-sharing, and collaboration among individuals passionate about menstrual justice. By coming together, we can work towards a world where menstrual equity is realized, and women’s rights and well-being are upheld.
