FREE PERIOD POVERTY
A Woman’s (Money) Worth
A politically driven concept that examines the struggle women face in Africa surrounding the taboo topic: menstrual cycle. Heavily focused on colour and texture to illustrate the experience of period poverty. This project brings visiblity and celebrates women, periods and their femininity.
