GOOD BEING A GIRL’s online shop is donating 10% of all sales to the Real Period Project. www.realperiodproject.org
The Real Period Project is a Community Interest Company based in Bristol, UK. We want to make high quality positive menstrual education available to everyone, and our project is about working out the best way to do that.
“Our goal is to encourage body awareness, acceptance and celebration, to challenge shame and to question society’s assumed position on menstruation being something embarrassing to hide. And because our key goal is inclusivity, we want this conversation to include everyone, because menstruation affects everyone, in some way. None of us would be here if it wasn’t for the menstrual cycle, so let’s get familiar with it!”
