‘Talk Period to Me’ was a series of engaging dialogues in collaboration with TruCup and Paint It Red, working for sustainable menstruation. The conversational series aimed to explore intersectionalities of menstrual health, encouraging participants to turn inward, undo prejudices, and explore nuances with diverse global experts.
We hosted Akshat Madan from AryaMarga Yoga Institute, who gave us invaluable insights into understanding the elemental body and how to align our chakras for better health. We were also joined by Carolyn Theresa Simon who followed up with a refreshing Vinyasa flow practice for our participants. Durga Gawde and Vjyanati Vasanta Mogli delved into understanding a non-binary perspective on menstruation. The session was moderated by Pragya Roy from Feminism in India.
Sally King from a UK-based non-profit organization, Menstrual Matters, decoded mental health and PMS, along with Dona Esteban, a Manila-based womxn’s well-being counselor. To understand policy aspirations, we invited Hon’ble Rajya Sabha member and Deputy Leader of Shiv Sena, Priyanka Chaturvedi, and Founder, Citizens for Public Leadership, Prateek Kanwal. The series saw over 100+ participants over 6 weeks.
