Women Connect: Period Poverty
4 Pentonville Rd, Islington, London N1 9HF, UK
Following their very successful inaugural International Women’s Day event, Women Connect is proudly hosting another female focused evening, this time concentrating on the very important topic of period poverty. Women Connect are known for their mission to champion women working within the creative industry, building an independent collective, and providing a powerful platform which offers professionals and artists alike the chance to flourish. This time they’re partnering with Bloody Good Period, Red Box Project, Flow Free, Free Periods & The Cup Effect to highlight an important message. 1 in 10 girls can't afford to buy menstrual products according to Plan International UK. Over 137,700 children in the UK have missed school because of period poverty and 68% said they felt less able to pay attention at school or college while menstruating. Menstrual supplies are not cheap but are an absolute necessity. Together with the help of Flow Free and The Cup Effect, Women Connect will host an evening of live music to generate donations of these products for those who can’t afford them.
Collaborating with Bloody Good Period, Red Box Project, Flow Free, Free Periods & The Cup Effect, Women Connect will help to raise awareness to the issue of period poverty amongst women all around the world. Many young women live without access to basic health and sanitation, something many of us women take for granted. At the event, there will be a donation box where guests can provide sanitary products to charities and contribute to making a difference in putting an end to period poverty. A team of young female professionals within the creative industry, Women Connect will use their skills and knowledge of bringing the best acoustic performances from the U.K.’s flourishing up and coming music scenes, whilst shedding light on a very important topic and taking action to help.
*Goodie bags with Rimmel London, ASOS, Cantu Beauty, Simple, PUMA and more available to every attendee who brings sanitary product donations!*
