Around the globe, poverty, taboo, misinformation, and superstition can make managing menstruation debilitating and even deadly.
We want to begin a conversation surrounding the needs of menstruating people, specifically those with physiological and functional needs that are practical and objective, such as access, choice, affordability, and usability. We hope that through creating an open conversation, we can discourage stigma and inform people about menstruation needs different from their own.
