Period Poverty

Read all about our period poverty campaign in this blog by VP Angus. 


To launch our Period Poverty Campaign we invited NUS's Women's Officer Gwyneth Sweatman to campus! The day consisted of taking our Period Poverty manikin around campus and talking to students about the campaign. We also installed the sanitary products in all our toilets within the SU! Also on the day of the launch, WGSU Vice President Angus Hamill - Stewart appeard on the radio station Calon FM alongside Gwyneth to promote the campaing. In addition, work around periods created by WGU Art student went on display in the Unviersity's Art Gallery! It really was a busy day - thank you to all who took part.













*Update* Since the campaign launched 3 weeks ago, the SU have been inundated with staff and students donating! We would like to thank everyone who has donated and will be donating throughout the year!

On 26th February 2018 students had the opportunity to recreate their own period poverty art work having inspiration from the Period work created by a WGU art student! Take a look: 



Due to the popularity of the campaign, we have started to roll out the campaign across the campus - here is the newest donation station in the Library!
