Eleven-year-old Jeanes is proud to be a menstruation ally for girls in his school.

At Jeane’s school period discrimination is common and girls are often bullied during their periods. Jeanes is working to change this and is leading by example to educate his peers (especially other boys) on the realities of menstruation; championing new positive practices that promote gender equality in the school and even understanding the role parents play in bringing about positive change.
