Talking Menstrual Equity. Period.
Safe, affordable, accessible menstrual products, is that so much to ask for? In her book Periods Gone Public: Taking a Stand for Menstrual Equity, Jennifer Weiss-Wolf tackles a taboo subject head-on: the tampon tax and other menstrual inequalities. Join her, along with Feministing editorial director Maya Dusenberry, award-winning journalist Kimberly Seals Allers, and Sophie Houser who co-created the video game Tampon Run at the age of 17, for the kind of discussion that would have made your great-grandmother blush.
