EWWWWW PERIODS. GROSS! As if. Periods are amazing and so are you.
November Bloody November! Everything that has ever been deemed to be evil about women is, in truth, what makes us powerful. AND THAT IS WHY THEY SHAME US. This month we’re baring our sacred souls and bleeding it out together with special guests Lindsey Charles (The Cell Phones) and Elizabeth Gomez (the kates, Drinkers with Writing Problems). The cramps, the sex, the snacks, the stress, the silly and the serious stories about that time of the month. The Chicago Period Project will be hanging out to answer questions and tell you more about their mission to make feminine hygiene accessible to all. Please bring a donation of UNOPENED Tampons, Feminine Pads, Underwear, Toilet Paper! ALSO IT IS THE VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY OF ALICIA SWIZ SO WEAR YOUR PARTY PANTS & BRING YOUR BEST BABES!
More about the Chicago Period Project
The Chicago Period Project empowers homeless and in-need people to experience their periods with dignity. The feminist, grassroots organization distributes pads, tampons, underwear, and other critical menstruation supplies to local shelters, schools, and crisis support networks. All menstruating people should have reliable access to period supplies. The Chicago Period Project’s goal is for the 29 percent of Chicago residents living below the poverty line to have healthy periods, and for us to raise awareness about this issue.
