Stop treating periods like a dirty secret; teach Menstrual Wellbeing
Sign this petition now - let's get menstrual wellbeing included in the school curiculum!
The Government are reviewing what should be included in the new Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) curriculum. We want Menstrual Wellbeing to be included. We want to overcome the stigma, taboo and embarrassment of talking about periods with all children, and for girls to know what’s ‘normal’, and what isn't, so they seek help. It takes 7.5 years on average to get a diagnosis of endometriosis. 1 in 5 women have heavy menstrual bleeding, but many don't seek help and continue to suffer because they don't realise it may be treatable. Many are too embarassed to talk about periods. This has to stop.
We need your help. We submitted our views into the formal government consultation in the new RSE curriculum earlier this year. But we need to show the Government the lots of people want this too. Please sign the petition here.
