The Wireless Female Network - Global Movement is a community of people striving to end ''period poverty'' and break the stigmas surrounding MHM.
Recent research undertaken on behalf of WFN shows that there's a direct link between Period Poverty and Generational poverty. Wherever there's poverty or a downturn in the economy females will experience a certain level of period poverty. This is the hidden side to poverty - the basic lack of hygiene, access, and education in MHM.
Whether it's Namibia, the USA, Haiti, the UK or South Africa taboos surrounding Menstrual health do exist. Globally there isn't much attention given to MHM. We, women, are just as guilty of using coded language to describe the menstrual cycle - this further perpetuates the taboos surrounding MHM.
The Model of Inclusivity
WFN is not alone in the fight for menstrual equity and to break the cycle of generational poverty. We're building a global community to amplify strength, creativity, collective wisdom, experience, unity, and resourcefulness to inspire change. We've made sure that our programs fit the specific needs of each community, region, and country and have therefore formed alliances and partnerships with both national and international groups, individuals, and non-profit organizations.
