Why women are tweeting Enda Kenny about their periods

Enda Kenny is getting a little more than he bargained for on Twitter this week: a campaign designed to highlight abortion rights in Ireland has women tweeting the Taoiseach some hilariously intimate details about their period.

The movement, using the hashtag #repealthe8th, is the brainchild of comedian Grainne Maguire, who kicked it off on November 2 when she said:

"Since we know how much the Irish state cares about our reproductive parts- I call my womb Ireland's littlest embassy - I think its only fair that the women of Ireland let our leader @EndaKennyTD know the full details of our menstrual cycle.

"Hey @EndaKennyTD just so you know, I got my period two days ago. Pretty heavy flow at first but now just occasional spotting #repealthe8th"

Here are some of the best tweets so far
