In the UK, 1 in 10 women and girls can’t afford to buy menstrual products and almost half of all girls miss at least one day of school due to their period. Today, on #InternationalWomensDay, we’re launching an initiative to offer free sanitary products to those who need them, no questions asked.
Simply visit the information desk on the lower mall, or ask any member of our team and we will provide you with a FREE discreet bag. If you prefer, ask for a “𝑃𝐴𝐶𝘒𝐴𝐺𝐸 𝐹𝑂𝑅 𝐸𝐿𝐿𝐸𝑁” and our team will know what you mean.
If you’re wondering “why Ellen?” Ellen Wilkinson was a suffragette, women’s rights campaigner, and the first female Education Secretary in the British cabinet, as well as a proud Mancunian woman!
Help us end period poverty by spreading the word!
