Event description

Description

A Celebration Day for Girls is a one-day workshop for 10-12 years old girls with their mother or female mentor.

The program is designed to support girls and women at this special threshold in both their lives, to provide an affirming, grounded and connected celebration of the journey to womanhood.

In the one day workshop girls enjoy lively discussion, fun activities, and hear women's experiences of menarche and growth into womanhood.

Menarche (girls first period) signifies the beginning of a girl’s fertile years and the menstrual cycle is an intrinsic aspect of being a woman for nearly half of her life. For many girls this is a time of embarrassment, anxiety and mixed messages about what it means to be a girl in a maturing female body. However, extensive research has shown that for young girls who experience menarche well prepared, with a positive introduction and emotional support, the result is higher self-esteem, fewer negative cycle related symptoms, favourable overall menstrual perception and easier subsequent births.

By celebrating menarche we give a profound message to girls that this process within her body is
important and valuable, and so is she, as she learns to inhabit and navigate her changing status through her
teenage years.

This event includes two sessions;
Tuesday April 14th, 2020 6.30-8.30 pm
- A two hour evening session for mothers/female mentors of the girls AND Attendance is essential to participate in A Celebration Day for Girls.
Much of the role of provider of information, wisdom and guidance will fall, naturally and rewardingly, to the mother's and female mentors. Therefore,a important preparation for A Celebration Day and to support you in this role, we meet for a two hour session before the Celebration day. The evening preparation session will have ongoing benefits for women and girls.
