Stop The Stigma




About the Stop the Stigma campaign

Stop the Stigma is a trade union campaign to raise awareness about periods and the menopause and how they affect the workplace. The campaign also highlights the necessity for the implementation of workplace policies to make workplaces more comfortable and inclusive for workers who may suffer because of symptoms of menstrual health or menopause.
