WHY 

 

Menstruation

Matters

What happens when we ignore girls' and women's aspirations and needs?

A NEGATIVE CHAIN REACTION

FOR A GIRL: Without menstrual management, girls become prisoners in their own bodies. Meaning that girls are isolated and confined to their homes, making it for them to attend and participate in school.

FOR THE COMMUNITY: Preventing a girl from receiving an education not only affects her, but also her community. It promotes social inequality, marginalization and poverty.

FOR THE ENVIRONMENT: Generic disposable alternatives often contain added perfumes and chemicals that may unnecessarily put a girl's developing body at risk. They are inaccessible to low income households and produce an immense amount of non-biodegradable waste.

Extraordinary

Purpose

In 2012, while working in Uganda, co-founder Diana Sierra was stunned to see girls dropping out of school because they had nothing to manage their periods.  After digging more deeply into the problem, she found that supplies like books and shoes were important, but they had far less impact when the very nature of a girl’s gender was being ignored, denied or degraded. It quickly became obvious that without addressing this fundamental challenge, gender inequality would persist, starting in the classroom and seeping into every aspect of a girl’s life as she grows into womanhood.
