At a crossroads

By 2030, it is possible to create a world where no woman or girl is held back because she menstruates, but only if we step up investment in menstrual health and hygiene now. That is the key message of our new infographic

The Menstruation Bracelet action

Add your voice to end period stigma!

The Menstruation Bracelet is a global symbol for menstruation created by MH Day. It stands for our joint commitment to create a world, by 2030, where no woman or girl is kept from realising her full potential because she menstruates.  

Join the Menstruation Bracelet action now by taking an image of yourself wearing the bracelet and publish it on your social channels – don’t forget to include the MH Day hashtags: #MHDay2021 #ItsTimeForAction. By wearing the bracelet, you show that periods are nothing to hide and help to end period stigma. 

It’s super simple to integrate a bracelet into an image of yourself, there’s no need to make a physical version! You can just use a digital version of the bracelet and integrate it into your image. If you don’t want to take a picture of yourself, then use one of our beautiful bracelet motifs or our bracelet video made by artists (download above under campaign materials). For our DIY-lovers: Use your creativity to make a bracelet from any material you like or use our template for a DIY bracelet made of paper.
