A Letter to my Younger Self


Freedom4Girls are excited to announce the publishing of the ‘A Letter to My Younger Self’ Book

With over 40 contributions from women of all ages, backgrounds, interests and experiences, Freedom4Girls has created ‘A Letter to My Younger Self,’ a book that explores the experiences of amazing women from all over the world.

We asked our authors, ‘what do you wish you knew then that you know now?’ ‘What advice do you think our younger generations could benefit from?’

To be launched on International Women’s Day week, celebrating all women everywhere, the book will be available on Etsy and via our website shop. Proceeds will go directly towards tackling period poverty, a condition we know has risen significantly in the UK as a result of lockdown with new figures showing 3 in 10 girls are unable to afford period products.

Please support Freedom4Girls by getting yourself a copy of the book and maybe gifting it to yourself or someone who might need a boost of Confidence through messages of female solidarity and empowerment.

'You have come such a long way and blossomed as beautifully as you could imagine'

COVID-19 UPDATE:

Unsurprisingly, we’ve made the decision to cancel our sewing workshops until further notice. However, if any of our volunteers would like to continue sewing at home, we’ll happily provide fabric, templates etc for you to do so. Please send us a message or drop us an email for more info (info@freedom4girls.co.uk). Our upcoming trips to Kenya and Uganda will almost certainly need to be postponed, so we’re taking this as an opportunity to build up a good supply of period packs for later in the year!

We are also aware that the current levels of panic-buying have left many shelves empty of period products. If you’re in need, please let us know and we will help you. We will be restricting supplies to 1 or 2 packs per person, and if you can normally afford to buy products, we ask that you give us a small donation so that we can replenish our supplies once things calm down a bit. Over the next week we hope to establish pick-up points so that we aren’t inundated with requests, so watch this space!

In these uncertain times we are as determined as ever to ensure that everyone has access to safe period products and will continue to provide those in need throughout the Leeds area to the best of our ability.

Stay strong and safe,

The F4G team x
