This open webinar panel discussion will focus on the state of period poverty in the Netherlands. How does the inability to access (good quality) menstrual products and infrastructures add up to the shame of poverty? Does the lack of menstrual products and education exacerbate other existing inequalities in the Netherlands?
The following women will be on the panel:
- Gaby Bartelse, Project Manager and Fundraising Manager at Voedselbank Rotterdam
- Lorijn de Boer, Researcher and Project Leader on period poverty at De Bovengrondse
- Mariah Mansvelt Beck, Co-founder of Yoni
- Sophie Heesen, Councillor at PvdA Gouda
This event is organized by Maria Carmen Punzi (PhD researcher and Menstrual Health expert) and SDG Student Ambassadors Tishana Martijn and Carolina Echecopar.
