Menstruation - Why are Periods such a Bleeding Shame? This frank talk reviews the impact of women’s menstrual cycles through the ages.

It looks at historical and modern approaches to handling this vital natural process, and how until recently menstruation led to women having virtually no rights.

It covers different cultural attitudes, the disgrace of period poverty and how religions respond to menstruating women, along with the latest practical changes enabling girls in developing countries to continue their education.

About Liza Jones

Are you looking for a lively and informative talk that will keep you and your members fascinated and wanting more? In the last five years I have given over 100 talks in East Anglia to organisations such as Women’s Institutes, Rotary, Inner Wheel and similar. I have a programme of a variety of talks, all with props to reinforce messages with the audience, and am frequently asked back again, having been to many groups several times.

My background in tutoring adults ensures that talks are lively, entertaining and different - never dull. I am author of the best seller 'How to Choose the Right Craft for You' and 'Oranges and Lemons . . . and other Citrus Fruit'.

I am happy to run through the content of specific talks and can be contacted on 020 7834 1066.

I do not have a fixed fee, but ask for a donation which I then Gift Aid to the East Anglian Air Ambulance. Hopefully you will never need them, but if you do, I know they will come up trumps.
