The Bloody Big Project - Tackling Period Poverty with Design
  The Bloody Big Project used Design Thinking to tackle Period Poverty. In collaboration with Industry Partners, Hey Girls and Wire Media, Edinburgh Napier University created a range of work based learning opportunities for students to respond to the Scottish Government initiative to provide free, accessible sanitary products for all girls and women in Schools, Colleges and Universities. The project aimed to investigate how the government pledge was delivered and sustained, explore whether the initiative was reaching those in need and break the taboo around discussing menstruation.
