Be part of a global advocacy platform and the FIRST ever Menstrual Hygiene Day on UW campus. Join us for a day of fun and discussion to raise awareness of the period stigma and recognize the importance of menstruation in women's health. This year, the theme of International Menstrual Hygiene Day is “Education”. At the University of Waterloo in partnership with HeForShe, our aim is to empower everyone through education to draw attention to the extent of the period stigma and lack of menstrual hygiene around the world.

-Amanda Jenkins, PhD Candidate in Applied Psychology at the University of Guelph

-Sabrina Rubli, co-Founder and Executive Director of Canadian NGO Femme International
