TishTash, the award-winning, UAE agency leaders in female focused brand PR and communications will host “It’s a Girl Thing. Period” on Tuesday June 29th, in a first of its kind, one day virtual event designed to tackle the taboo issues of menstrual and feminine health for women of every age and stage of life.
Periods can make people feel uncomfortable – but talking about them shouldn’t be. The average woman menstruates for 3,000 days during her lifetime – the equivalent of 8.2 years. There’s no denying that menstruation is a big part of life and it’s essential that society makes that ‘time of the month’ and everything that goes with it a more manageable, open, and shame-free process.
Featuring a back-to-back schedule of interactive sessions from 9am through to 8.30pm and with the support of event sponsors The Body Shop, Nabta Health and SEVA, the day will focus on all aspects of menstrual, womb and vaginal health issues, to help females of any age – with expert input and discussions.
Held virtually on June 29th, “It’s a Girl Thing. Period” is free to attend and open to everyone and participants can dip in and out of the daily sessions as they wish and you can register for the sessions you’d like to attend below:
