Fighting For Equality
To accomplish our mission to end period poverty and stigma, we acknowledge that fundraising is not enough. Systematic change needs to happen at a societal and government level.
Our founder, Christiane has founded the first UK chapter of PERIOD to achieve this change. The student-led team educates, advocates and serves others to end period poverty and stigma.
The chapter also aims to be a youth voice for menstrual health and inspire all students to take action against injustices. By providing an all-youth safe space, we nurture students to become changemakers. Our members become actively involved in the movement and provide sustainability to PET's leadership.
PERIOD @ Sevenoaks School and PET work together in their shared goals.

How We Bring About Change
We strive to facilitate conversations around periods to empower menstruators and non-menstruators alike to advocate for period health. Through our large social media platform, awareness campaigns and school workshops we tackle period stigma and poverty. Check out the educational leaflet on periods we created for school children with Sex Ed Matters.
We aim to advocate for systemic change through policy and legislation regarding menstrual equity. Along with supporting and promoting menstrual equity bills, we create our own petitions to demand change. Sign our newest petition to urge the UK Government to keep the tampon tax fund and assist underfunded charities that support menstruators. Help us reach 1,000 signatures!
We help alleviate period poverty through fundraisers and product drives to support vulnerable menstruators. Throughout the year, we hold bake sales, sell merchandise and stickers and organise talks to provide refugees and asylum seekers with period products. In response to COVID-19 we have raised an additional £1700 for Bloody Good Period to support 800 menstruators with 16,000 pads.
