MÍOSTA is a newly launched Irish menstrual education project. They have started running a series of workshops at universities around Ireland and they are coming to UCDSU! Expect to learn tonnes about reusable and alternative menstrual products, debunk menstrual shame and stigma, learn about environmental concerns, menstrual activism and period poverty, and create your own bloody activist intervention. The workshop will be hosted by menstrual educator Charlotte Amrouche.
MÍOSTA workshops are open to people of all genders, whether they are menstruators or not!
