What the eff is a cupaware party?
CupAware Parties are a partnership between Bloody Good Period and The Cup Effect, a charity that empowers women and girls by raising awareness about menstrual cups and making them more widely available.
A CupAware Party is one part Tupperware Party (ask your mum), one part Ann Summers Party (err... ask your mum) and, like, maybe two parts Year 7 school Period Talk, but without the sexism, love eggs or awkward teachers. It's your chance to find out everything you've ever wanted to know about menstrual cups, vaginas and your sexy sexy period.
CupAware for Asylum Seekers
And just like Tom's shoes, when you book a CupAware Party for yourself, you're funding another workshop for asylum seekers and refugees. We believe that all menstruators should benefit from the choice of whether to use cups or not, with a continued access to pads, as ever, if they don't choose to use a cup.
Sadly, many of the women we meet at the drop in centres may have experienced sexual trauma and/or Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) so talking to them about their vaginas is not something we take lightly. We are working with experienced professionals in order to make the women we work with as comfortable and equipped as possible in our CupAware Workshops.
We're going to be at Women of the World Festival (WOW), at Southbank Centre, London!
CupAware Party Sat 10 March, 3 - 4.30pm,
Are you cup-curious? Interested in using a menstrual cup but aren’t quite sure? Join the CupAware Party and bust period taboos together. Learn everything you need to know to get cup-confident! CupAware is a partnership between The Cup Effect and Bloody Good Period.
book your own cupaware party
When you book a CupAware Party, you're enabling Bloody Good Period and The Cup Effect to hold a similar workshop for up to 12 asylum seekers or refugees. A CupAware Party for you and up 11 friends (so, 12 total) costs £600, and are currently available to book in London.
You'll provide the room and the snacks (we recommend wine) and we'll bring the cups, lols and information. A selection of cups will be available to buy, and are not included in the ticket price.
If you'd like to enquire and book, then drop us an email on firstname.lastname@example.org with you preferred dates, times and locations.
