#SayPeriod: Hannah Miley discusses campaign urging people to break stigma on language around periods

A group of 50 elite female athletes - including Commonwealth, European and Olympic medalists - have joined forces to urge people to #SayPeriod and standardise the language around the female body.

Today's language of the period ("Aunt Flow", "girls' stuff" and circa 5,000 euphemisms) perpetuates a centuries-old stigma that even has athletes admitting they lack real period insight, knowledge and know-how.

When Miley first experienced periods while going through puberty and found it impacting her swimming both when competing and in practice, it was viewed more as a problem to be fixed rather than a natural process the body goes through.
