Yoppie Period Poverty Guide

All around the world women are being held back in life and even put in danger, simply because of their period. Period poverty is a global issue, but even in the UK alone, 1 in 10 girls can’t afford to buy menstrual products, with many missing school as a result.

But period poverty isn’t just about affordability. Many women and girls don’t have access to hygienic facilities, or feel unable to manage their periods with dignity – often due to stigma or superstitious or religious dogma around menstruation.

Yoppie have developed a guide on period poverty which outlines the key problems, what’s being done, and how it can be eradicated for good.

What the guide will cover:

  • Period poverty in the western world
  • How period poverty has a negative impact on:
    • Education and work
    • Health
    • Emotional wellbeing
  • The history of myths and taboos about periods
  • Period poverty in developing countries
