Let’s talk about periods! 🔴

Period poverty affects millions of people all over the world, but we rarely talk about it. Because there’s so much shame and stigma surrounding menstruation, people who can’t afford period products—whether in schools, prisons, or in their daily lives—are often left with nowhere to turn for help. 

 

But, thanks to activists and advocates like the guests featured in this episode, that’s changing. You’ll meet Leah Rodriguez, a journalist who covers period poverty globally; Breanna and Brooke Bennett, 12-year-old sisters who started Women in Training (WIT) to promote menstrual equity in their community; and Dr. LaToya Clark, a physician committed to making sure every young person who has a period knows how to take care of their body. Let’s put an end to period stigma, once and for all!

1 in 4 women struggle to afford period products. Here's how U by Kotex is helping.
