S5 Ep4 Normalising The Conversation Around Periods with Rachel from Bloody Good Period

Many asylum seeking women living in the UK today face a tough choice each month. With the small amount of money that they receive, do they buy food? Or the items necessary to manage their period?

In today’s episode we sit down with Rachel Grocott from the awesome charity Bloody Good Period to find out how they’re tackling period poverty and normalising the conversation around menstruation with humour, creativity and a kick ass Instagram feed!

We discuss:

  • What period poverty for asylum seekers and refugees means and why it's important to help if you can
  • The Bloody Good Period ethos and how humour and social media has helped their charity to grow
  • Breaking the taboo that still exists around talking about periods
  • The Walk of No Shame
  • How to get involved
