Bullying about periods.

Bullying about periods.

Almost half of British girls have witnessed their peers being bullied and shamed about their period, a study has found.

Polling company YouGov found nearly half (43 per cent) of girls said boys tease or joke about periods – with 40 per cent of this teasing taking place in lessons under the noses of teachers.

Read the detail.

 

 

It also found 91 per cent of girls worried about going to school while on their period and 35,000 girls are missing school because they are on their period –  the equivalent to 2.1 million hours of education.
