Menstrual Hygiene Day

June 18 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

This year’s May 28 celebration marks the 10th anniversary of Menstrual Hygiene Day! Learn more about this year’s theme, Together for a #PeriodFriendlyWorld, and join the conversation by visiting the Menstrual Hygiene Day page.

To mark the day, CanWaCH is partnering with Free Periods Canada to facilitate a virtual and interactive workshop on menstrual equity for youth aged 30 and under in our network. Starting at 12 p.m. EDT, the workshop builds a deepened understanding of period poverty, helping to end the stigma surrounding menstruation and increase awareness about the challenges related to accessing menstrual products. Registration is limited to 30 participants on a first-come, first-served basis!
