We Got you Girl, Period is an initiative to combat inadequate access to menstrual supplies and end the shame associated with menstruation. Feminine hygiene experiences aren’t uncommon. Period poverty, or inadequate access to menstrual hygiene tools and education, is a problem across the globe affecting girls, women and nonbinary and transgender people who menstruate.
We aim to create a communal awareness to the natural cycles of the womb, by providing informed support and additional wellness resources. Working in collaboration with MiSN and ESSHI – Orange County, we have developed an outreach program that will help alleviate the stressors associated with menstruation.
