Periods. Let’s talk about ’em. We all know having your period can be annoying, painful, inconvenient, and if you live in a big city, it’s a little expensive. Running out of tampons and having to stop by the store day of isn’t ideal. In reality though, this is a #firstworldproblem. Did you know that over 100 MILLION girls lack adequate menstrual products all over the world? Think about it for a second. No menstrual products. Nada. This means their entire world is put on pause for the duration of their cycles – girls are missing school, work, and life in general, because they can’t hide it. In many countries, when a girl starts her period, it’s considered her “week of shame”. Something that is so womanly, so natural, and so out of our control is considered shameful or taboo. Imagine that.
