CAMBIA LAS REGLAS brings menstrual cups to women who can not afford them. Through the donation of the cups we strive to break silence around menstruation and female health, women’s social roles and female sexuality.
We bring information, workshops and an opportunity to connect with other women not only from the local community, but also from all around the world.
How does it work?
- Donate a menstrual cup (and leave your contact details if you want to)
- CAMBIA LAS REGLAS hands the cups over to women during a workshop
- If you provide your contact details and the consent to share them, we connect you directly with a recipient of the cup (in case of language barriers we offer translations of e-mails and messages for free).
CAMBIA LAS REGLAS is part of Konsent initiative. KONSENT activities focus on prevention of sexual harassment. CLR currently aims at helping socially excluded women in our immediate surrounding (Czechia) and in one developing country (Central America).
We consider menstrual cup an ideal mean to embrace female period. By having a common topic – the cup – regarding menstruation, women can develop a broader dialogue about the experience of menstruation, femininity and about women’s roles. By making menstruation something common, healthy, and desirable, one creates deeper and better connection with one’ s own body.
Positive attitude towards our own bodies further helps us to strengthen our self-esteem and self-respect. Individuals with healthy self-perception create healthy relationships and healthy environment, and are less vulnerable when facing domestic violence, abuse, and manipulation. Through the promotion of the use of menstrual cups and the trainings we provide together with the cups, we strive to empower women and to help them create healthy psychological, social and natural environment not only for themselves, but also for their communities.
