Just a quick note to say that throughout Femstruation week its BRING YOUR OWN BOOZE to every event whether that be at the Big Red Door or the Forest Cafe.

New promotional poster

Today we are back with another poster. This one is again to show the schedule but we thought we would like to show a female in her best......hmmm not really!!!!! Femstruation week is about showing that a woman is a powerful creature and not just a good housewife. We want the week to be inspiring and empowering and we have ironically tried to portray this by using stereotypical imagery. You will hopefully see this up in Edinburgh very soon.
