31. Don’t Hate, When We Menstruate

Yanique Brandford had to skip school and go to the nearest shopping mart to buy herself period products. The price tag was $15, and she only had $8 in her bank account. Born from a single-parent household where money was tight, Yanique’s mom had to make sanitary pads out of cardboard, plastic, or newspaper. In this episode, Hazami Barmada tackles the “pink tax” and breaks down misconceptions around period poverty — a stigmatizing experience that happens even in the richest countries. We also examine paths towards safe and affordable menstrual products and why education is key in achieving period equity.

Featuring policy and advocacy insights from: Yanique Brandford, Founder of Help A Girl Out, Laura Strausfeld, Attorney and Co-Founder of Period Equity, and Jennifer Gaines, Program Director at Alliance for Period Supplies
