Princeton Students for Reproductive Justice and Princeton Students for Gender Equality co-hosted a Menstruation Celebration on Friday, November 18th. The event aimed to teach people of all genders and sexes about menstruation and break the stigma around it by having fun games, lots of food, period trivia, music, and discussion. 1080princeton enjoyed the fun and captured some of the highlights.
Students and professors showed support for the Menstruation Celebration by signing their name and adding a vagina or period-themed stamp.
Students enjoyed cupcake vaginas.
White chocolate covered pretzel “tampons” were a crowd favorite.
Two male undergraduates study ways to improve your period. In addition to the educational stations titled “Menstruation Inclusivity” and “Period Myths,” a university nurse was stationed at the event to answer any and all questions about menstruation.
A uterus pinata was one of many period-themed games at this event.
The “Good Old Fashioned Tampon Toss” was another popular game.
Students donated unopened boxes of pads and tampons to Distributing Dignity, an organization that provides sanitary products to women in need.
Students signed a petition asking the university to provide free pads and tampons in campus bathrooms.
PSRJ and PSGE reminded students with a sign that you can still get pregnant on your period and gave away free condoms.
