Dignity, Agency, Power: Exploring the Linkages Between Women’s Economic Empowerment and Workplace MHM

Women and girls all over the world experience challenges managing their periods, especially those who live and work in environments that do not support adequate menstrual hygiene management (MHM). For working women, these challenges may have critical implications for their health and well-being, as well as for economic outcomes such as work attendance, performance, advancement, and earnings.

Join us on Menstrual Hygiene Day for a webinar presenting the current body of evidence related to MHM and women’s opportunities for economic empowerment and growth worldwide, as well as early efforts of action research to further understand this relationship. The webinar will focus on a formative literature review on MHM in the workplace conducted by the USAID Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Partnerships and Learning for Sustainability (WASHPaLS) activity and the early phases of follow-on efforts from our first setting under study: a Nepali carpet factory.

Join the webinar on Thursday, May 28, from 9–10 a.m. EDT.
