100 Women. So it seems I’m continuing with this and I’m making my first Zine! Well, not counting the tiny books I used to make when I was a child, didn’t realise I was making Zines back then. I’ll post updates of pages as I complete them. Hopefully by next weekend I’ll have a finished Zine. . . . . #yearofthewoman #feminism #endperiodpoverty #periodpoverty #art #artistsoninstagram #artistsofinstagram #artsy #gallery #contemporaryart #cornwall #painting #drawing #inktober #krowji #zine #womenempowerment #womensupportingwomen

School are collecting the boxes this year & my daughter has has such thoughtful ideas including the fight against #periodpoverty. She amazes me with such empathy at such an young age!

ATTENTION HUMANS! I have created a questionnaire in my profile to see how period poverty affects members of the LGBT+ Community, especially people with genders outside of the two party binary. I have found zero research that includes these individuals and have decided to take matters into my own hands. If anyone could take the time to fill this out I would be eternally grateful!

We have been quiet for awhile as been busy with Christmas preparations. 😍😍😍 We would like to extend our big thanks to Natasha from Walthamstow who donated very generously. We received not one, but 3 bags full of sanitary pads, knickers and tights. And she travelled all the way to Tottenham on a Sunday to drop them all off! Big hugs from RBP Tottenham and Wood Green. 😍😍😍 This means we are now ready to contact more schools as we have enough to sustain the current schools that we have and take more schools on board!  Happy Days!
Hard work pays off! An amazing turn out in the Red Collection Fundraiser 💖  @sistersocietyuk  @lewesfcwomen  @komedia_brighton  @redboxprojectbrighton
Clitterati knickers are now available in my Etsy shop. Link is in the profile.  Block carved and hand printed by myself.  The design was created by the talented Shannon Downey, a Chicago craftivist and owner of @badasscrossstitch please go and check out her work.  The knickers are being produced to help raise funds for @bloodygoodperiod an awesome period poverty non profit organisation. They provide period supplies to asylum seekers, refugees and those who can’t afford them. Go check them out to see the vital work they do.  The knickers are £4.95 (plus p+p) and £2.50 from each sale will be donated to Bloody Good Period. Stocks are limited with this first batch so get in quick. Perfect secret Santa or stocking filler for a badass Queen and you’d also be helping out women who can’t afford basic sanitary products. Awesome knickers plus feel good factor!

A gorgeous afternoon in my hometown of #wolverhampton supporting #givemas at @lighthousewolverhampton in aid of @project.give  This is a brilliant charity that started only three months ago whose mission is to get rid of #periodpoverty in Wolves and beyond. In this day and age it is heartbreaking that girls are having to take days off school because the my do not have enough money to buy sanitary towels when on their period. The fight back has begun and I am so proud that so many big heartedpeople came together to sell their crafts to raise money to buy sanitary products. A great turnout, and wonderful to see Wolverhampton South West MP Eleanor Smith in attendance.  Special shouts to the gospel choir that sang and also Natalie and young Roisin who were great! Super special shout to @wolves and #conorcoady for supporting this great charity!  Look closely at the tree decorations..! #charity #endperiodpoverty #projectgive #givemas #lighthousecinema #sanitaryproducts #peoplepower #givingback #hometown #communityspirit #artsandcrafts #localpeople #creativeminds #leavenonebehind #leavenogirlbehind #christmasgifts xxxx❤️
When I wanted to switch my job in Istanbul, my cousin introduced me to an agency owner. Every year I would meet with him to discuss my dream role, and the offer they were presenting was meh. Years later same agency owner contacted me suggesting I should meet with one of his contacts in LA, an entrepreneur to discuss possible collaborations. As great as his idea was, I wasn’t passionate about building a business on “food”. So we never collaborated. A year later, same entrepreneur contacted me when he heard I was looking for a space for @pmsboxco. We visited the location and bam. It was love at first sight. UNITA is one of the best designed co-working spaces in Los Angeles. They just opened their second location in Hermosa Beach, and they are about to open their next location in Manhattan Beach. Turns out the founders are also Turkish! Moral of the story, keep building your contacts. Be open to meeting new people. Always. You never know how someone may be able to help. UNITA will welcome @pmsboxco as a guest tomorrow. We are happy to visit this beautiful location. Thank you @erenemre for making it happen.
Although I was floating on only just under 4hrs sleep today was a great day.  @project.give is an organisation that ensures that no young person suffers from #periodpoverty.  Thank you for putting on #givemas today, it was one of the best Christmas fayres I’ve attended in while🎄 We were even graced with the company of @beverleyknight who took time with her family to go around each table and make purchases. She has such a genuine and beautiful spirit about her ❤️ I sampled some of @sweetiepiebakery75 vegan lemon curd cake O.M.G i can’t even begin to describe how good it tasted 😋 if you’re in Birmingham anytime soon go to @fresshfood I’ve been told you can purchase some of his dreamy goodness in there! 😉 Rachel from @offthehook.flyy passed by to give me some hand warmers I’d ordered and I had to put them on straight away.  And not forgetting the lovely @lydiacrumpet who was my fabulous helper for the day ❤️ #periodpoverty #merrygivemas #projectgive #christmasfayre #wolverhampton #buyindependent #buysocial #feedmycreative #feedmycreativecic 🎄🌱😊
On #day8 of #fitradvent, we asked @myfreda - the UK’s first customised, organic, natural period care subscription service (although they arguably do and stand for a lot more than that) - for their top-tips on being a bit more sustainable this Christmas... . ‘1) Rather than throwing food away, transform your leftovers into another dish, or freeze them for a day when you just can’t be bothered to cook. 🍽🥣🍲 . 2) Save paper! Rather than buying new wrapping paper every year, try using read newspapers or a scarf. Instead of sending Christmas cards, why not send e-cards? No waste! 💻🎁✉️ . 3) Buy organic, chemical free sanitary products from Freda, either for yourself or as a present! The tampons are biodegradable and the pads are made from eco-friendly and renewable materials. Also, part of the profits are donated to UK based period poverty initiatives, so you know you’re doing good with your purchase!’ 🌎⭐️ . #sustainable #reducewaste #leftovers #organic #chemicalfree #eco #plasticfree #periodpoverty #periods #menstruation #sanitarycare

@homelessperiodireland collect sanitary products for women who are homeless or living in direct provision. Access to these items should not be considered a luxury but to many people they are. If you can afford it please consider donating to this charity this Christmas. #periodpoverty
Period paaaaarty! 💕 It's back! With more glitter, more vulvas and more fundraising for @bloodygoodperiod!  Join me at @theappletreelondon in Clerkenwell on January 27th for vulva making, a period pub quiz, pin the clitoris on the vulva and lots of other fun vulva related things. All money raised goes to Bloody Good Period who do an absolutely fantastic job, getting menstrual products to those that need them - asylum seekers, refugees, homeless folk etc.  I *love* running vulva making parties. Vulvas are all a little bit different - some are hairy, some aren't, some have asymmetrical labia, some don't, some have big clitoral hoods, some don't. And all are normal and wonderful and deserve to be made out of felt and feathers and fimo and glitter and celebrated for being just. as. they. are.  So come along, make a vulva and help a bloody brilliant charity. It's a great way to start off the New Year! You don't need to have a vulva to come along. But you do need to be old enough to be in a pub.  Link to tickets in my bio 🎫  #periodparty #fundraiser #periodpoverty #loveyourlabia #diyvulva #vulvalution

The #tampontaxi has been on the road for 2 weeks sparking conversations around global period poverty. Well not it's time for some not-so-fun facts... - In Kenya, 1 in 10 fifteen year-old girls in Kenya are having sex to pay for sanitary ware. - 71% of girls in India are unaware about menstruation before their first period. - Girls in sub-Saharan Africa miss as much as 20 per cent of school days because of menstruation, according to UNESCO. - The UN has recognised menstrual hygiene as a global public health and human rights issue, globally 1.2 billion women lack access to basic sanitation and hygiene. Facts and numbers don't always pull on the heartstrings, unfortunately. But we have a duty to ensure that this message is spread across London so that we can drive change. Why not share one of them on your story? . #period #periods #periodpoverty #periodpovertyuk #periodproblems #instaart #instapic #instadaily #instagirl #art #artist #artists #artistsoninstagram #world #kenya #london #taxi #car #cars #advert #advertising #feminism #charity #activism #illustration #illustrator #red #pink
Those of you that have worked with me with menstruation or fertility issues know that I actively advocate using natural sanitary ware such as organic tampons/pads, moon cups or sponges, but there is a crisis going on In the 21st century – girls and women not being able to afford or have access to sanitary products? Is simply outrageous.!!! Not only that it’s degrading and embarrassing – particularly for girls at school who can’t ask or talk about being on their periods. It’s not right that women/mothers have to choose whether to feed their kids or buy sanitary towels. It’s not right that young girl’s at school from low income families where there just isn’t enough spare cash have to go without a basic need. We can all see the growing impact of poverty, but its becoming more widespread and to see the working poor numbers increase is shameful. Going into food banks shouldn’t be seen as the ‘norm’ Women have no choice around menstruating, sanitary protection isn’t a luxury it’s a necessity, having the lack of funds to pay for a basic necessity is unacceptable, period poverty shouldn’t exist, but it does!  This is why I feel passionate that period poverty has to end and will do everything I can to help to alleviate the problem and raise the issue where possible to help to eradicate it.  How you can help  So I am appealing to all my customers old and new to see if you would like to help. Each time you visit me for a session, bring along a packet of pads/tampons or mooncups, I will have a collection box available, then I will pass on to our local Red Box Project. #stopperiodpoverty #periodpoverty #menstruation #getonboard #periods #mooncycles #bleeds #makingadifference #redboxproject @redboxproject

So if you’re out shopping today or looking to make a difference this monthly, head to heygirls.co.uk and donate a #festiveperiod box for just £3.25, we’ll match it as always and together we can give the gift of #perioddignity this Christmas ❤️ #heygirls #myperiod #pads4pads #buyonegiveone #shopsocial #periodpoverty #anyonewhomenstrates #inspo . .

Gender equity includes more than menstrual equity and ending period poverty for cis-women - it includes equity for every person who menstruates, and equirty across identities. "Roughly 40 percent of homeless youth in the U.S. are estimated to be lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, or queer, though only 7 percent of overall youth identify as LGBTQ, according to a survey by the Williams Institute, an affiliate of UCLA School of Law specializing in such research and policy work."

#repost @stanford.med - Meghan Markle helping break the cycle of period poverty! ・・・ Hundreds of millions of women in India lack access to sanitary pads or tampons. An organization founded by #stanford Health Policy graduate student Suhani Jalota is working to change that, and during a visit to the country last year Meghan Markle pledged to help the Myna Mahila Foundation. "She kept her word," says Jalota, noting that her group was one of the charities chosen for the royal wedding. "She really thinks we're on to something that could actually change the world for many women." #stanfordmedicine #globalhealth #meghanmarkle #periodpoverty #girlempowerment (Photo courtesy of Myna Mahila Foundation)
Your Life has purpose,  your story is important, your dreams count , your voice matters, your were born to make an impact.  The smiles and knowledge you give through any initiative you undertake changes lives in ways beyond imagination.  The EMBI Charity Foundation @embicharity through it's girls and hygiene campaign is addressing the sensitive topic of mentruation and menstrual hygiene and breaking the stigma of period poverty by educating and providing sanitary pads to underprivileged  young school girls.  In a 3rd world country like Cameroon, many young girls from low-income families are simply unable to buy what their better-off peers consider as basic essentials, making their periods a monumental challenge every month. As a result, they are missing significant amounts of schooling every month. For many young women, their periods are a time of embarrassment, fear and shame. Their inability and unwillingness to attend school during this time cause a huge and damaging educational deficit.  Let's create awareness and fight period poverty together.  #girlsandhygienecampaign #periodtaboo #periodpoverty #keepagirlinschool #faytexsanitarypads

I met with a lovely lady called Fabienne this morning. Fabienne works in the local community  to help those who are homeless, live in hostels or who are experiencing severe financial hardship & struggling to make ends meet. It is a sad fact for many people that after paying bills and buying food, there is no money left for everyday personal items we take for granted like shampoo, deodorant, razors & sanitary products.  The Bromley @thehygienebank has been set up to help those who cannot afford these items & we are supporting this organisation by acting as a drop off point for any donations of toiletries for men & women. If you would like to help, you can get involved by dropping an item off the list into our donation box in the salon. When the box is full, it will be collected and distributed to those in need. All donations must be new and unused. Your support is much appreciated. Thankyou.  #christmasisatimeforgiving  #givetogive #localcommunity #pettswood #orpington  #bromley #makeadifference #periodpoverty  #hygienepoverty  #sharingiscaring

Five days left❗️ There are 68, 000 homeless women in the UK, and since the average pack of pads costs £3, these women often have to choose between buying food and buying sanitary products. No woman should have to struggle with this! If you can, please spread some love this Christmas and pick up an extra pack of pads or tampons next time you’re shopping, it will make a huge difference❤️ thank you so much for all the donations so far📮 [source: Shelter] message @hannahpriory or @hannah_francesca about out of college drop-off points

FRI-NALLY!!! ♥️📦 The PMSBOX is out. And ready to be yours. . . @augustusphoto 📸
Last night I was lucky enough to attend the @shethinx X @bloodygoodperiod X @birdsonglondon party @beyondretro 🖤✨ if you saw my story highlights then you will have seen their were some pretty wonderful speakers & lovely things happening. Here’s a recap. 💭❤️ @birdsonglondon produce beautiful pieces which champion the women who make them, connecting worker to wearer. I have two of their lovely embroidered tees & I embrace the fact that, with birdsong, Fashion is fairer. Every time I wear one of their pieces I feel grateful & my faith in humanity rockets. 🚀 ✨ @shethinx have made period proof pants which actually work! That means that you never have to worry about buying a pad or throwing tampons into landfill again. EVER! Plus, they pay it forward. They have raised almost 100,000 dollars for @girlsinc and contribute funds & pants to women in need. Pretty neat, huh? @bloodygoodperiod headed up by @hellogabbye are making waves for women across the UK. They have supported women who don’t have the means to buy sanitary products through approximately 24,000 periods and counting 😮 And they encourage and display activism towards making these products part of the welfare state & encouraging women to talk about their periods. ❤️ Along with @hellogabbye, @amikageorge & @nataliebyrne spoke about the groundbreaking things they are doing to improve the policies of government and better educate girls about Periods & #periodpoverty. Phew! 💭🖤✨ Pretty powerful women, right?
