Sheffield City Council is leading the way in raising awareness and action on menopause and period poverty with its work towards a Period Equality Charter for the city.
Cllr Jayne Dunn, Deputy Lord Mayor said:
‘Period poverty is a serious issue for women in our city which disproportionately affects disadvantaged and minority ethnic groups, women and girls are struggling to afford period products and this has to stop – we have to end period poverty, shame and inequality once and for all’
‘This is why I will be joining thousands of young activists this Sunday 28th May (Global Menstrual Health Day), as the Every Period Counts campaign heads to Westminster to celebrate the great work being done to end period inequality across the UK’
‘I urge every corner of government to listen to the message that young people need more support now’
