CODE RED: The Equality Emergency

Every year, 10 million children in India leave school when they start their periods.

This is an equality emergency.

This Menstrual Hygiene Day (28th May), we launch CODE RED! A campaign to raise awareness and support for our work helping people suffering from debilitating menstrual taboos throughout India.

 

JOIN OUR SOCIAL MOVEMENT!

Help us raise awareness in the battle for menstrual equality. Make a donation and post a selfie on instagram using our Your Body is A Battleground filter. Originally by Barbara Kruger, Your Body is a Battleground, first stood as a protest against controlled reproductive rights, now it stands again for fighting the battle for womb empowerment today.

GO TO @SANFIRSTUK TO ACCESS THE FILTER!
CLICK HERE FOR INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO POST

GET CREATIVE for CODE RED!

We’re not asking you to take to the streets.
We are asking you to take to your mats, embellish your ears,
pound the pavements, click your knitting needles, dye for equality.
Sanitation First has curated a series of ways to show your support this MHD,
from your favourite workout to red hot brand collabs.

Protest your way this Menstrual Hygiene Day.
