På 28 maj deltar vi i ett onlineseminarium arrangerat av Swedish Organization for Global Health. Seminariet är på engelska med deltagande mensaktivister från hela världen!

How are you supposed to change your pads or wash your hands if you don’t have access to a toilet and clean water? How are you supposed to wear a tampon or a facemask if you cannot afford it? Menstrual health and COVID-19 have more things in common than you think. They both disproportionately affect the most vulnerable people, they both hinder women and girls from reaching their full potential. As many things in our lives, COVID-19 is impacting menstruators and those who work towards gender equality through good menstrual health. Do you want to know more?

 We are very proud to invite you to an inspiring seminar with four outstanding speakers from different parts of the world. Join us and meet Amina, Rebecka, Shyaka and Roisa for an insightful discussion around periods in pandemics and their work during these times. You can’t miss it!
