Essity a pour but de briser les tabous liés aux règles et de sensibiliser les jeunes filles et les femmes à l’hygiène et à la menstruation. Des programmes pédagogiques ont été mis en place en Amérique latine, en Asie et en Europe, afin d’éduquer les jeunes filles sur les règles et la puberté.
Nous soutenons activement la Journée de l’hygiène menstruelle de l’organisation WASH United par une activation dans les médias sociaux et par l’éducation. Le thème de cette année est #nomorelimits et se concentre sur la sensibilisation au rôle fondamental d’une bonne gestion de l’hygiène menstruelle pour permettre aux femmes et aux filles de réaliser leur plein potentiel.

42% of women have refrained from going to school or work because of menstruation. It is unacceptable that in 2020, our world still hasn’t provided period-safe education and work environments, says Joséphine Edwall-Björklund, Senior Vice President Communication at Essity.
Essity (with our brands SABA and Tork) are partnering with UNICEF in Mexico to educate 4,000 pupils and 500 teachers in Mexico City and Chihuahua about attitudes and habits in connection with menstrual hygiene management, menstruation taboos and hand washing. The project is called Hygiene is our right, and highlights the rights of children and young people in relation to health, education and gender equality.
Stress during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic maybe be affecting the body and menstrual cycles.
Essity through Libresse is donating 100 000 SEK in Sweden to Plan International organization where we partner to support for equal rights for girls in relation to Menstrual Hygiene Day 2020.
A global study reveals women’s quest for the perfect vulva. But there is one problem. It doesn’t exist. Bodyforms’s campaign Viva La Vulva celebrates the vulva in all its beautiful forms and fights against the myths, insecurities and stereotypes that women are subjected to when trying to care for their vulvas.
‘Period poverty’ means being unable to access sanitary products and having a poor knowledge of menstruation often due to financial constraints. In the UK, 1 in 10 girls can’t afford to buy menstrual products. Bodyform partners with In Kind Direct and has since 2017 donated 3.6 million pads to local community groups and charitable organizations.
Periods are normal, so should talking about it be. We believe that to normalize periods all children should be fully educated about periods. Bodyform in UK drives the Fear Going to School Less campaign aiming to improve period education and tackle the taboos around periods, regardless of gender and done with boys and girls in the same group.
One significant obstacle that leaves many women at a disadvantage is the stigma around menstruation. Women who menstruate need a private space for washing and managing their menstruation. These needs are overlooked far too often, making menstruation an impediment in community participation, education and working life.
In our 2020 study (release date Sept 2020) it shows that five out of ten parents have never talked to their daughters about menstruation, in 2018 this was four out of ten. More activation is needed to get both parents to drive this conversation. Periods are natural, yet home conversations to create trust and understanding still don’t seem to happen everywhere.
Over the last few years, we have witnessed a transformation in how menstruation is talked about in public. Decision-makers in both the public and private sectors have a particular responsibility to drive this change. Also companies working in this field have a role to play in challenging taboos around menstruation.
Divers états de santé sont affectés par le cycle menstruel, mais la sensibilisation à cette relation est faible, tant parmi les médecins que les patients, et cela peut conduire à des diagnostics erronés ou des traitements inappropriés.
