The Feminist Feature - Daisy Wakefield

The Feminist Feature - Daisy Wakefield
Our second Feminist Feature is the wonderful Daisy Wakefield.

 

Daisy is a Manchester-based freelance artist and period poverty campaigner. In 2019, she used a portion of her student loan to supply free period products at UWE.

 

Daisy is a regular public speaker for Period Poverty at events such as: BBC Radio, The Labour Party, Manchester & Bristol University and panel discussions.
Her latest campaign is the #bloodystudents campaign with Bloody Good Period - one of the charities 5% of our profits go to! 

 

They believe universities should be providing period products to their students, as part of their duty of care towards them - something we agree with too.
“Students have already suffered from the chaos, uncertainty and stress of results and clearing, from the major limitations on usual student life, and the collapse of the job market, making financial hardships a reality for far too many.”
This campaign is encouraging others to write to university vice-chancellors and MPs to call on universities to step in and provide these essential products. You can download your template here.
