#MyPeriodMyPride Period with a Dignity. #MenstruationMatters

The process of menstruation is natural. There’s no human race without it. Yet most of us loathe talking about it. This enduring culture of silence creates an environment in which girls and women are denied their right to access menstrual health products, disposable facilities in schools including access to clean water to take care for themselves. On May 12, 2017, our Theater for Development conducted performance in Manyaira Secondary school (Marondera) addressing the issue of Menstrual Health as a public health issue. In attendance was the school authority, Girls Choose Smart Contraceptives Ambassadors, Community Behavior Change Facilitators and a total of 110 girls from the school. #IPADCAMPAIGN #AYESE2017 #NFYD #FKNORWAY #NFYD

This year's focus is on squatter camps, where we have most of the girls not going to school because of lack of and no access to proper, clean and safe sanitary towels. Girls and women are having to brave the risk of infection, sacrifice their dignity due to lack of one of the smallest yet so important commodity in a girl's life.

Help me change this by giving me a birthday gift of a pack of sanitary pads in 2016 as i dedicate this one to all the girls out there #deliverdelayeddignity #IpadCampaign #womanhood #menstruationmatters

Good news for Zimbabwe
Veritas Wins Court Case Against Child Marriage

Constitutional Court Decides Marriage under 18 Unconstitutional

The Constitutional Court this morning delivered its long-awaited ruling on child marriage. The application to outlaw child marriage succeeded. This is a great day for gender equality, women’s rights and children’s rights and the fight against poverty..

The court’s order was:

1. The Application succeeds.

2. Section 22(1) of the Marriage Act [Chapter 5:11] is unconstitutional.

3. No person, male or female, in Zimbabwe may enter into any marriage, including an unregistered customary law union or any other union, including one arising out of religion or a religious rite, before attaining the age of eighteen (18).



This progressive decision is a mark that the Zimbabwe Constitutional Court is building up a body of constitutional jurisprudence which will also be quoted in other jurisdictions and should assist the Africa-wide campaign against child marriage.

Congratulations to the lawyer Tendai Biti who argued the case extremely well before the Bench of the Constitutional Court on January 14th 2015.

Well done to the applicants Loveness Mudzuru and Ruvimbo Tsopodzi for having the courage to describe their experiences of child marriage in affidavits for the court.

15 million girls a year are married before 18. That’s the equivalent of the population of Zimbabwe or Mali. A growing number of leaders across Africa are committing to ending the practice, but more needs to be done. Here’s how leaders can take action: #NoU18Brides

#EndChildMarriage #NoU18Brides 40% of girls in sub-Saharan Africa are married before the age of 18, depriving them of their health, education and the chance to prosper. If we don’t accelerate our efforts, the number of child brides in sub-Saharan Africa will double by 2050. #NoTimeToWait
Fact:15 million girls a year are married before 18. That's the equivalent of the population of Zimbabwe or Mali.

"The support from the United Nations includes, but is not limited to, alignment of marriage laws, strengthening the child protection system to track, account and safeguard children from early marriage, social mobilization of communities to address negative social norms, enhancing girls’ retention in schools and access to skills development, and supporting decisive leadership and increased political will at community and national levels".

what role should parents play in the lives of their daughters with regards to Sexual and reproductive health and rights particularly menstrual hygiene

its 5 days after we commemorated the International Menstrual Hygiene Day in Bulawayo, and this was done through a dialogue in pumula north suburb in Bulawayo and it was disheartening to find out that over 60% of the girls and ladies that attended the dialogue confessed to have used a piece of cloth during their menses because they do not always have money to buy sanitary pads. one of the older ladies said they don't talk to their grand daughters about menstruation because children of today don't listen and the question that remained was what is the role of parents and guardians in their children's lives in as far as their sexual and reproductive health and rights are concerned???? #menstruationmatters
