Welcome to Pink Parcel. We’re delighted to announce an new project starting in 2022 and we hope you’ll join us in the 'Pink Parcel'' revolution—to ensure that every girl has menstrual dignity. Period.
We believe that every girl deserves menstrual dignity, meaning access to education about menstruation, access to pads, and freedom from stigmas and taboos surrounding menstruation.
There are three core aspects to our Pink Parcel mission:
ACCESS - making sure that girls have access to pads. We believe that all girls deserve dignity through access to adequate sanitary hygiene products.
EDUCATION - teaching girls what menstruation is, and what to expect from it. No girl should fear that she is diseased or bleeding to death when she gets her first period. Every girl deserves the dignity of self-knowledge and understanding of her body.
De-stigmatisation - breaking taboos and stigmas around menstruation. In many parts of the world, it is believed that a woman is cursed, dirty or promiscuous when she has her period. Even in the UK, menstruation is often seen as dirty and shameful. We want to change this, and ensure that girls and boys, men and women, all know that there is dignity in menstruation.
