CBWC February Lunch with Guest Speaker Rochelle Courtenay
Rochelle Courtenay is Share the Dignity’s founder and Managing Director; the title she is most proud of though is ‘Pad Lady’. This title came about and stuck while she collected over 1.1 Million packets of pads and tampons across Australia over three years. She learned of homeless women going without basic sanitary items during their menstrual cycle. Most noteworthy, Rochelle decided the question was not “Why is no one doing anything” but rather “ What’s stopping me from doing something?”
First of all, in March 2015 Rochelle took matters in to her own hands collecting sanitary items within her local community and distributing to local shelters. As a result, a simple idea of giving dignity to women, Share the Dignity has grown into a national charity. Consequently, it has over 3,000 volunteers Australia wide, and most noteworthy, provides multiple initiatives aimed at giving dignity to women.
