Description

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, 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.

At Menstrual Hygiene Day on campus:

• Learn about available resources on campus

• Engage in fun and interactive activities

• Learn about the importance of menstruation in women's health from a diverse panel featuring:

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

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

-Elizabeth Onyango, PhD Candidate in Geography at the University of Waterloo and Queen Elizabeth Scholar

-Dr. Susan Elliott, Professor in the Department of Geography and Environmental Management at the University of Waterloo

Panel discussion begins at 2pm at STC 0010.
