    • On October 19, 2019, we will rally for NATIONAL PERIOD DAY—to elevate the issue of period poverty and to demand real change in making period products more accessible for all. We welcome EVERYONE to join, whether you menstruate or not.

      Bring your family and friends! Bring posters and signs! Wear red!

      MENSTRUAL HYGIENE IS A RIGHT, NOT A PRIVILEGE. We are the Menstrual Movement and this is our Manifesto—to fight for equitable access to menstrual hygiene, and to break down the stigma surrounding periods.

      This fight is on ALL OF US, and we must TAKE ACTION NOW. Unlike most poverty-related issues, this one is solvable. Along with destigmatizing periods, we are calling for menstrual products to be freely accessible in SCHOOLS, SHELTERS, and PRISONS.

      PLEASE RSVP AND SHARE THIS! There are rallies being hosted all across the US in honor of PERIOD DAY!

      The fight starts here. Now. Together.
