We have a campaign coming up on My Period Is Awesome during May. It's called #noperiodshame and is the brainchild of my dear colleague Shyaka Lawanyaaga Farid in Uganda. Influencers from Uganda, Kenya, Namibia, Sweden, the US and more are joining us on this quest to end period shame once and for all. Globally. And we would love for you to join us
During the Signature Women art exhibition at the Artipelag Art Museum, the Statement Arm necklaces will be available in the design shop. It feels fantastic to show pieces of the Menstrual Equity Collection on such an important and public scene. Artipelag is an international venue for art, good food, events and activities – beautifully set on Värmdö in the Stockholm Archipelago. Signature Women – 100 Years on the Swedish Art Scene runs until Sunday, September 27th.
It's time to make way for inclusive feminism: a movement where all people of all genders can come together to push for equality, understanding and respect.
When I as a genderqueer tattoo artist first started to integrate politics in my line of work I soon realized I needed to find a more gender neutral token for feminism than the Venus Sign, and decided to create the graphic crotches - the mini vagina, and the t-cock.
Last week I sent the #metoo necklace across the country to Anna Samuelsson in Umeå. I once made this necklace to celebrate the work of NGO Make Equal and yesterday it attended the first graduation of Make Equal Academy!
