Women are at the helm of navigating colossal change to rebuild industries, spark movements, and unleash opportunities for others across industries and generations. They are dreamers and go-getters. They turn ambition into reality, rearchitect their communities, and rise to their highest potential while lifting others along the way.
To celebrate doers and their doings, FullStopp Organisation is hosting a virtual women’s talk to bring together speakers and performers thriving in their respective industries - artists, sportswomen, activists, social workers, lawyers, influencers, comedians and change makers - to provide much needed inspiration during this time of crisis. The ‘Here to Slay’ Virtual Summit will focus on breaking stereotypes, redefining rules, inspiring boldness, igniting initiative, and building the new chapter for change.
Through motivational speeches, talks and performances, we intend to celebrate those who run to the fire, not hide from it. Those who have proved to the world that women need a sword, not a knight in shining armour.
The 'Here To Slay' livestreamed Summit will be followed by a Donation Campaign to Raise Funds for Worker's adversely impacted by the Covid-19 Crisis.
After discerning the barriers that women faced in households, schools and the workplace due to a phenomena as natural as Menstruation, 16 year old Anjali was driven to unveil this topic from under the black polythene. She found it ironic that despite being the only source of blood in the world that was not traumatically induced, it was the blood that the world viewed with most disgust.
She founded FullStopp - a youth led organisation now working towards improving awareness and access to Menstrual Products and facilitating healthy attitudes towards periods. The organisation distributes re-useable cloth pads, an eco-friendly alternative to non bio-gradeable plastic pads, to underprivileged women, and holds awareness sessions with them - explaining the biology behind periods, busting myths and misconceptions, and outlining certain Dos and Don’ts ( which is, in a nutshell, not gobbling an entire jar of Nutella in one night because there’s NOTHING a woman can’t do on her period! ).
This Team of passionate High-School Students runs campaigns to spread awareness, encourage public participation, and promote the notion that Menstrual Inequity is a human’s rights issue as opposed to a women’s rights issue.
Team FullStopp wishes for a day where women can free the pad from the underside of their sleeves, where talking about Menstruation is as normal as talking about last night’s dinner, and where not one girl misses out on an education just because she was born with a uterus.''
