'Why should we panic about having our period at a festival?'

BBC, 18 Sep 2021
Musician Francesca Dimech said she was "panicking" when she realised her period would coincide with a festival last month.

The 37-year-old said she'd normally delay it with medication but this time a pharmacist refused to prescribe it.

She then thought: “Why am I changing my hormones... doing something drastic to my body just to go to a weekend festival?"

Period Poverty charity worker Olivia Thomas said the experience can be "daunting" and even "dehumanising”, so organisers needed to think about the amenities on offer as outdoor events increase.
