Menstrual Hygiene Day: Making menstruation a normal fact of life by 2030

28 May 2022

Other

Today, millions of women and girls* around the world are stigmatised, excluded and discriminated against simply because they menstruate.

It’s not acceptable that because of a natural bodily function women and girls continue to be prevented from getting an education, earning an income and fully and equally participating in everyday life.

While Menstrual Hygiene Day is on 28 May, our team and our partners work all year round to:

  • Break the taboos and end the stigma surrounding menstruation
  • Raise awareness about the challenges regarding access to menstrual products, education about menstruation and period-friendly sanitation facilities
  • Mobilise the funding required for action at scale

All of this contributes to our overarching goal: to build a world where no one is held back because they menstruate by 2030.

Join the global day of action.

*We recognise that not everyone who menstruates identifies as a woman and that not all women menstruate
