In 2000 Jane Bennett created the Celebration Day for Girls workshop for girls and their mothers in her local community of Castlemaine in Central Victoria. Through word-of-mouth the popularity of this workshop grew and by 2012 the need for more facilitators had become urgent. By 2018, just six years later, Celebration Day for Girls was available in over 20 countries, with facilitators adapting this celebration of the near-universal female experience of menarche and menstruation to a variety of cultural needs and backgrounds.
As facilitator numbers grow and their reach into different communities spreads, more and more girls and their mothers are able to enjoy this unique day and the many benefits it offers.
The inherent transformational significance of puberty and menarche, coupled with the intention and commitment to offer our very best to girls and their mother/carer, has seen this workshop evolve into a unique and powerful day offered widely by an exceptional group of women.
