About The Event

The University of East London's Dept. of Social Sciences invite you to Bleeding Dignity: the role of Dignity in Menstrual Health.

Poor menstrual health practices have macro impacts in educational inequalities, chronic illness and sexual violence. UNICEF reports that 28% of girls in rural India quit school soon after their first period and a large proportion regularly miss school because of poor menstrual health. Lack of sanitation facilities further aggravate menstrual health management. For example, 300 million rural Indian women practice open defecation, which has been linked with disease, chronic illnesses and sexual violence in northern India but in rural parts of several sub-Sahara African nations.

The University of East London's research in the Indian states of Uttar Pradesh and Bihar, funded by DfID GCRF, aims to unpack the role of dignity in understanding menstrual health challenges and interventions.

At this event they'll discuss the challenges to-date of field work in Uttar Pradesh and Bihar and show some clips of the Bollywood film, Padman.

You'll find them in room USS1.01. Join for refreshments at 5.30pm and get ready for a 6pm start.

Free to attend. Everyone welcome!
