    Menstrual equity activist Vivi Lin receives prestigious Diana Award (2021/07/22)

    Vivi Lin, an activist for menstrual equity, has become the first Taiwanese recipient of the prestigious Diana Award. The accolade, which was established in the U.K. in memory of the late Princess Diana, recognizes young people from around the world for achievements in social and humanitarian action. Lin said she's humbled and honored by the prize. She said that on her award application form, she made sure to identify her country as Taiwan. Let's hear from her.

    Little Red Hood founder
    I wanted us to be able to write Taiwan on the form, because everyone in my team comes from our beloved country, Taiwan. Also, of all the projects we’re working on, most of them are based in Taiwan. Now that we have this award, we will continue doing what we’re doing, but even better. We want to continue making an impact in places around the world, including Taiwan. Places where there is still period poverty, a lack of education on menstruation or where periods are still stigmatized.

    The 22-year-old is the founder of the non-profit organization Little Red Hood. The group tackles issues like menstrual stigma and period poverty, which is the lack of access to sanitary products and hygiene education. On the Diana Awards official webpage, Lin says she began to advocate for menstrual equity due to experiencing painful periods throughout her life, and to being diagnosed with an ovarian tumor when she was 17 years old. Lin also found fame last year with her video message to WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus in response to his allegations of Taiwanese prejudice.
