#KindnessMatters: Changing the taboo culture around Menstruation

Ilayda is a PhD student, a Human Rights Lawyer and the Founder of We Need To Talk, an initiative working to improve health and sanitation for some of the most vulnerable groups in her home country Turkey. Through a number of big fieldwork projects where Ilyada and her team have distributed sanitary products and offered period education to women and girls through one-to-one conversations and workshops, We Need To Talk has reached more than 5,000 women and girls so far. Ilyada is working to destroy the taboo culture around menstruation in our society and campaign for fairer taxation on menstrual hygiene products in Turkey.
