This afternoon I came home to find some lovely post from Pearl, including little zines on period positivity she picked up and passed on to me. I’ve now been introduced to the great work of Chella Quint, a Sheffield-based comedian, designer, artist + education researcher, who is building the #periodpositive campaign.
“She accepts that people may both love and hate periods, but tries to unpick how big an influence the media plays in these attitudes. She aims for ‘period neutral’, using a positive approach.”
Despite the name, it is a one off zine. I had a lot of time-pressured fun making, in time for Period Pride Day on Feb 18th.
- self – care tips
- cryptic crossword (thanks to Psiren!!)
- vegan brownie recipe
- an essay i didn’t write
- a menstrual calendar
It was intended as a fun project and a way for us connect with each other + destroy the shame around periods.
