We’re so glad you’re here! Are you ready to be period positive? Great!
-Chella Quint, Period Positive founder
Period positivity is a great way to open yourself up to relearning menstrual literacy… and it’s easier than you think!
But actually… you can’t just say you’re period positive, you know – you’ve got to work at it.
Sometimes folks don’t know that when they say ‘period positive’ this means a specific set of inclusive values and high standards developed through founder Chella Quint’s research and outreach work since she coined the phrase and started promoting it through her hashtag, zines and live events. We ask partners, fans, ad those new to this work to agree to some basics. Our ‘red lines’, if you will. That’s why the phrase was coined and the logo and framework designed. We hope you’d like to champion these ideals too, because research shows that this framework helps improve our understanding of periods on many levels and in transformative ways.

The Period Positive campaign and the concept of period positivity started as a phrase coined by former head of PSHE, comedian and education researcher Chella Quint, grew into a campaign, a trademark, a charter programme and a movement.
