I wrote this, on why boys need to be educated about periods, and why breaking the cultural taboo of menstruation is crucial in our fight for gender equality. Today, talk to a man in your life about your period - even if it’s gross. ❣️ #FreePeriods #MHD

VICTORY FOR FREE PERIODS!!! ❣️ Today the government has announced that their pledge to provide period products in all English secondary schools and colleges will now be rolled out to primary schools too. This will mean that EVERY child in compulsory education will no longer need to worry about where their next pad or tampon will come from. The scheme will be rolled out nationally from early 2020 and period products in ALL schools will be fully funded by the Department of Education. This is incredible. THANK YOU to EVERYONE who has written to their MPs, signed the #FreePeriods petition, came to our protest, and has been a part of the #FreePeriods movement. YOU did this. The government have heard us, and we couldn’t be more thrilled. ❤️❤️❤️ Also I got my period as soon as I heard the news which is weird.

FREE PERIODS 2 YEARS ON!!! After starting the #freeperiods campaign exactly 2 years ago today, we are on the cusp of eradicating period poverty in all schools in the UK. But the fight isn't over. We really need this pledge extended to primary schools, so that no child, regardless of their age, will have to miss school because of their period. We need to keep campaigning to end period poverty across the globe, and let's talk openly about menstruation, to end the shame and stigma that perpetuates gender inequality. Keep bleeding and keep fighting!! #freeperiods ❤️❤️

I wrote this for @stylistmagazine on how to make change, and I share some things I’ve learnt from campaigning for #FreePeriods, to end period poverty in schools. After starting #FreePeriods from my bedroom two years ago, I was thrilled to hear that our government has announced a pledge to fund free menstrual products in all secondary schools and colleges in England. Activism works and real change IS possible! @stylistmagazine @lovephilosophyuk #RemarkableWomenAwards https://www.stylist.co.uk/opinion/amika-george-period-poverty-making-change-happen/254104

It’s been 2 weeks since we heard Philip Hammond’s plan to provide free menstrual products to children in secondary schools. Although we welcome that he has since extended this to colleges, we are yet to hear any further details. . We urge him to extend this pledge to primary schools - we can’t deny access to younger children attending primary school who have already started their period. . We will continue to campaign for free menstrual products in ALL schools and colleges, so every child, regardless of age, can have equal access to education, unhindered by period poverty. . Please support our campaign by contacting your local MP, via email or social media, and help us to raise awareness to ensure no child has to experience period poverty. #freeperiods . . #endperiodpoverty #periodpoverty

FINALLY!!!!!! In the Spring Statement, the Government has just announced funds to provide free menstrual products in secondary schools and colleges! This is incredible. We’re still waiting to hear more details about the scheme, and hoping it will be rolled out to all children in compulsory full time education, such as those in primary schools. The #FreePeriods legal campaign will keep going until this happens, and we are ready to hold the Govt to account. This happened because of YOUR support, and the amazing efforts of everyone who has fought and campaigned against period poverty. #FreePeriods ❣️❣️❣️

Thank you @thismorning for helping to raise awareness of period poverty in the U.K. It’s been 2 years since my last interview with you, there have been changes but there is still huge amounts to be done. Please support Free Periods and help us to end period poverty for all children in the U.K. #FreePeriods

‘Women in all their diversity – women of every nationality, race, ability, religion, sexual orientation and gender identity – need to have their voices heard and respected. Every woman should have the freedom to make her own choices and claim her rights.’ This #IWD, I am so proud to stand with so many incredible women to call for a just world where the rights of women are respected, valued and realised. Go to @guardian to read our open letter.

Today, on #IWD, we launch a brand new series called #FreePeriodsStories where we talk about periods and why we have to end period poverty worldwide. We kick off with the ever-amazing @adwoaaboah ! Listen to Adwoa and then nominate 2 friends (tag below!) to do the same, answering 3 questions: 1) Why do we need to end period poverty? 2) What do you wish you’d known about your period? 3) Tell us an embarrassing period story. We have some INCREDIBLE women (and even some men) lined up, talking about why they want to live in a world without period poverty. Let’s normalise our periods and fight to end period poverty, because periods should never hold us back. ❤️

Today, the government announces £2m to 'end period poverty worldwide' & commits to £250k for an 'advisory task force' to tackle it in the U.K. We need clarity on this. The task force reflects a disappointing lack of urgency. We call for #FreePeriods in all schools. . . 📸@bloodygoodperiod #periodpoverty #endperiodpoverty

Last night, a film about smashing period taboos won an Oscar! This, despite an Oscar judge saying he won’t vote for the film because periods are “icky for men”. An incredible moment for everyone fighting for menstrual equity!! #freeperiods ❤️❤️
