This weekend, I had the privilege of delivering a talk in the famous Cambridge University Debating Chamber to share my experience of introducing the Period Products (Free Provision) (Scotland) Act.
It was my pleasure to share this bucket-list moment with Cambridge Union members, many of whom are also avid period poverty campaigners. The panel was a great chance to shine a light on the world-leading work that Scotland has undertaken in moving closer to achieving gender equality and I am always incredibly proud of the progress that period dignity campaigners from across the UK are achieving.
Just a few days ahead of International Women’s Day, it was heart-warming to be sat on a panel with so many inspiring women who are fully committed to eradicating period poverty.
I would like to thank the student representatives at Cambridge Union for kindly inviting and accommodating me and allowing me to share my insights. It is a memory I will forever cherish.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
