InfoPoint conference: Diversity – Red Alert 🩸 Women have human rights period

This event celebrates International Menstrual Day (#WeAreCommitted) as part of EU Diversity Month. It aims to offer a safe and open space for debate and discussion on equality and diversity in the European Commission and in the world at large.

Today many women and girls are excluded from participating due to poor access to menstrual health products, caused by a lack of education, persisting taboos and stigma, limited access to hygienic menstrual products and poor sanitation infrastructure which undermines their access to educational opportunities, health and overall social status of women and girls around the world. As a result, millions of women and girls are prevented from reaching their full potential.

The overarching goal of this event is to discuss and highlight good practices that ensure diversity by safeguarding that no one is held back because they menstruate. It will showcase examples to strengthen meaningful participation by everyone that aims to combat Period Poverty, enhance the Sustainable Development Goals and the EU Gender Action Plan (GAP III).
