The event is being held at the Redbourn Parish Centre, Redbourn, St Albans AL3 7LR www.redbournparishcouncil.gov.uk/hall.php

Keynote speakers are Janet Fyle MBE Policy Adviser at the Royal College of Midwives and Ruby Raut CEO and Co-founder of WUKA Periodwear   www.wuka.co.uk/pages/about

Janet will speak about Female Genital Mutilation (FGM), the consequences of FGM – its physical and psychological impact throughout the lives of victims. She will also talk about Mental Health – how it affects women in pregnancy and post birth.

Ruby was born and brought up in Nepal where, upon turning 12, she saw a different side to her culture. Nachune, the Nepali name for period literally translates as ‘untouchable‘, which is what women are told they are when they start to bleed.

Janet and Ruby are both inspirational speakers so don’t miss this opportunity to hear them speak first-hand. T

Soroptimist business will be covered for Members of Soroptimist Clubs in the London Chilterns Region and there will be plenty of time for networking.
