The Toronto Beaches Lions Club in partnership with the Fox Theatre is offering a FREE screening of Netflix's "Period. End of Sentence." Join us for the documentary short followed by a panel of community guest speakers discussing how poverty and access to feminine products is a little-talked about social issue that affects women and girls in our own community today.
"The documentary short follows a group of local women in Hapur, India, as they learn how to operate a machine that makes low-cost, biodegradable sanitary pads, which they sell to other women at affordable prices. This not only helps to improve feminine hygiene by providing access to basic products  but also supports and empowers the women to shed the taboos in India surrounding menstruation – all while contributing to the economic future of their community."
When: Saturday, October 19, 2019
Time: k11:00am - 1:00pm
Where: Fox Theatre 2236 Queen St E.
***We will have a “Donation Station” and would appreciate a contribution of Menstrual Products to play a part in helping end Period Poverty. This will be welcome assistance to shelters or drop in centres participating in the panel.***
