Overcoming period taboos, with Jaspreet Kaur

Jaspreet is an award-winning spoken word poet, author, commentator and educator. Her work is all about having difficult conversations and her debut book ‘Brown Girl Like Me’ looks at the issues and stigmas South Asian women face on mental health, feminism, menstruation and beauty standards. 


With the goal of changing the narrative, Jaspreet joins Dr Gemma to unpack the issues around gender differences, menstruation and how period poverty affects women across the world. She also dives into her journey as a poet and what wellness means to her. 


Ultimately, Jaspreet’s message is to take time to get to know your body and express yourself to support your mental wellbeing. Pulling no punches, this empowering podcast should equip women everywhere to handle difficult conversations better and do just that.
