Period emoji: our next submission
We still love our period pants. A lot. But we think the best way to get a period emoji now is to ask the Unicode Consortium (the official body that manages emojis worldwide) for our blood drop to be included instead.
In partnership with NHS Blood, we’ve sent a new submission – with the hope we might finally have a period emoji for girls and women everywhere.
Putting an end to period taboos
"We should be made to talk about periods instead of hiding them away. I don’t think it’s something we should be ashamed of." - Kelsey, 14, UK
Not talking about periods is having a huge impact on girls around the world. It’s making them feel ashamed of their bodies, affecting their sense of self-worth and leaving them without the knowledge they need when they get their period.
