“Feminism isn’t about making women stronger. Women are already strong, it’s about changing the way the world perceives that strength.” ― Geena Dunne Anderson.
In 2022, FIN conducted a webinar entitled “Don’t periods matter?” to commemorate the International Day of Women and Girls in Science, featuring females of all ages who are impacted by menstruation- Shyama V. Ramani (Professor at UNU-MERIT and Founder Director, Friend In Need India Trust), Praachi Kumar (Doctoral Fellow at UNU-MERIT), Olivia Holbrook (Senior Service Designer, Snook ), Julieta Marotta ( Academic Programme Director at UNU-MERIT), Dr. Rashi Tandon ( Medical Officer in ECHS Bareilly, India), Anna Matsuzawa (UWC Student), Saimi H. (UWC Student) and Akshita Kapoor (Student at UPES and FIN social media and events coordinator). Through this discussion, we learned how these impacts affect our performance and lives and how we can cope with them.
