Why the Women's Fund?

Womxn's voices for change are loud, but not often heard and not always speaking the same language. The Period Place wants to change that, and the Women's Fund is a great way to put our time and money where our mouth is, and advocate for change.


How or where do you see the Women's Fund making a difference?

To everyday womxn, to people making small changes, to humans all around Aotearoa whose work deserves to be lifted and empowered through funding and support: that's why The Period Place loves the Women's Fund.


Who is your biggest female role model/inspiration and why?

We have so many role models all throughout the period industry! It's a supportive environment to be a part of and some incredible wāhine advocating for some pretty big changes means it's a bit hard to choose just one! We both admire Helen Clark, for her ideas, her stamina in a "man’s world" and her drive for change. We are also pretty enamoured with Natalie Byrne, author of The Period Book, and love the work of Nadya Okamoto and Vincent Forand, the co-founders of Period.


Finish this sentence: "In 10 years' time, I want women and girls in New Zealand to…"

"...be more free. More free to live life the way they want to, without restrictions on their jobs, pay, sexuality, bodies and societal expectations, gender identities, safety or futures in any way. And, of course, to have periods, and to feel and express them however they bloody well want to when they have them."
