Madison Connors is a proud and strong Yorta Yorta, Dja Dja Wurrung, and Gamilaroi woman, mother, founder and Creative Director of Yarli Creative and Fierce Tidda Club. Madi was born and grew up in Kanny-Goopna (Shepparton),Victoria but now calls Naarm (Melbourne) home. With Fierce Tidda Club, her vision is to create a movement which addresses period poverty experienced by many First Nations womxn.
With a background in public health and sociology, and as an Endometriosis Ambassador, Madi is a strong advocate of women’s health. As a mother of two beautiful children, and having battled with endometriosis and adenomyosis herself, Madi knows the uterus is a sacred organ that can create and sustains life but can also bring us great pain.
Madi says “I want to make sure that the most vulnerable women and girls in our communities receive the support with their menstrual cycles that they need. Although we are all different and come in many colours, shapes and sizes, we all deserve equal and equitable access and support”.
Fierce Tidda Club (tidda translates to “sister”) will work to design, develop and produce culturally inclusive, Australian-made, sustainable sanitary items and loungewear with a public health focus and social enterprise model. Fierce Tidda Club will work to create equitable access to sanitary products.
