Celebrations Day For Girls
Preparing Daughters and Parents for this Rite of Passage: Menarche
Celebration Day for Girls was created by Jane Bennett in 2000 with the intention to overturn secrecy and embarrassment around a girls's first bleed. Celebration Day for Girls nurtures connection, normalisation and openness through practical and positive information, stories and fun activities.
In 2012, Jane started training facilitators so that girls worldwide may have access to a Celebration Day within their communities delivered by passionate and dedicated facilitators.
Celebration Day for Girls is now available in 20 countries for deep social and cultural change and social justice.
Celebration Day for Girls creates a safe space to support:
the children's curiosity about their own bodies,
bonding time between daughters and mothers and
starters conversation around puberty
Celebration Day for Girls brings:
awareness on menstruation responses around the world,
menstrual cycle awareness covering the 4 phases and
attention on all different menstrual products available
Celebration Day for Girls is held in two parts

'The Celebration Day For Girls with Victoria was everything I hoped it would be and more, for both myself and my daughter. She facilitated the sessions with warmth, honesty and interacted in such a calm, informative and welcoming way with both Mums and Daughters. The girls were buzzing when we joined them at the end of the day - with all that they had learnt and seen. Such a difference to see our girls celebrating this time in their lives, by learning that what is happening to them is fantastic and special - so different to my own experience years ago! Thank you Victoria for leading this empowering and beautiful day - so important that you are doing this great work!'

' Thank You so much for giving our girls such a beautiful experience. They had such fun together, whilst learning such important information so that they can be prepared for the next stage of their journey.
A truly fun and informative experience.
I feel Isla is now equipped with the knowledge she needs to confidently move in her next stage of her cycle of life.
