Chella believes that menstruation education should be:
- Free, unbranded, objective, and inclusive of reusables like menstrual cups and cloth pads
- Consistent, accurate, up-to-date and peer-reviewed
- Supported more comprehensively by the National Curriculum, particularly in Science and PSHE
- Aimed at different age groups, starting before puberty, and revisited regularly
- Inclusive of different genders, cultures, abilities and sexualities
