A lot of people spend a lot of time menstruating. But few of us spend much time actually talking about it. Isn’t it time this changed?

We think it’s time to talk about periods out in the open.
Rethink Periods is a free, nationwidee schools programme updating mainstream period education in primary and secondary schools. It offers unbiased and informative information on all products available and the social and environmental contexts of menstruation.
