The Second Period Party 🩸: More people, greater diversity in gender and ethnicity 👫👭👬
The second edition of the "Period Party" took place from May 26th to May 28th, with a total attendance of nearly ten thousand people. Participants who had attended the first edition noted that not only were there more people this time, but there was also an increase in the presence of individuals from different genders. The "Period Party" was jointly organized by GoMoond and the sensual brand "PURE＆SEXY" with the aim of promoting a better understanding of the usually less discussed topics of "menstruation" and "sensuality," and initiating conversations about one's own body.
The birth of the "Period Party" originated from the inspiration that the two founders of GoMoond gained at the 2018 World Menstrual Conference. They discovered that Taiwan's menstrual leave policy had become a case study for other countries, and they were moved by the enthusiasm and joyful atmosphere surrounding the global focus on menstrual issues. They thought, "It would be great to have such a grand event in Taiwan!" With that in mind, they aimed to spark curiosity and discussions about menstrual issues in Taiwan, challenging people's perceptions of menstruation. This idea became a reality during World Menstrual Day in 2022.
This year's Period Party exhibition area includes static exhibits, interactive experiences, menstrual-themed food, workshops, and a stage area. Upon entering the exhibition area, visitors can learn about the origins of the "Period Party" and "World Menstrual Day 528" and gain a better understanding of menstrual actions and policy implementations throughout Taiwan. Elementary school students expressed that this was their first time discussing menstruation in such a serious manner, and attendees remarked that the event allowed them to approach menstruation in a relaxed and enjoyable way. People from Hong Kong commented, "Taiwan is indeed different"! 🙌🏻
We appreciate the extensive media coverage of the 2023 Period Party.
