To mark International Women’s Day early, grab a Bloody Caesar and bask in the energy and expertise of women at the forefront of the menstrual movement. Jennifer Weiss-Wolf – author of Periods Gone Public, the book Gloria Steinem says is “the beginning of liberation for us all” – is joined by entrepreneurs, activists and international development leaders. These vibrant, vocal visionaries are coming together in challenging and real dialogue about smashing shame, period policy, values-based business, shedding taboos, and bringing down barriers that prevent people with periods from accessing menstrual supplies.
Come explore the role that the menstrual movement must play at this turning point for intersectional feminism.
Esteemed panellists include:
- Alyssa Bertram, CEO and Founder, Easy. Period
- Sabrina Rubli, Founder and Executive Director, Femme International
- Madeleine Shaw, Co-Founder, Lunapads
- Suzanne Siemens,Co-Founder and CEO, Lunapads

Doors open at 6 pm, and the panel begins at 7 pm at Good Gorilla Creative Coworking (401 Richmond – LL01). There will be hors d’oeuvres, drinks and a silent auction. We are excited to have you be a part of this meaningful conversation.
This event is generously sponsored by Lunapads. All proceeds from this event will go to Mother Nature Partnership, a charitable organization that works in Toronto and Cameroon to tear down the barriers that too often keep girls out of school and women out of work. By attending, you will be helping to provide access to menstrual health supplies to girls and women in Cameroon in March 2018, so they can realize their rights to health and dignity and participate fully in their own lives.
We are committed to creating as inclusive and accessible a space as possible. If ticket prices are prohibitive, please email firstname.lastname@example.org as we have reserved free tickets to increase accessibility of the event.
