Today Days for Girls is launching a campaign to help bring the topic of sustainable menstruation into public view in a personal way. Sometimes the topic can make people uncomfortable. But bringing awareness and raising funds for this vision is vital to the daily success of thousands of women worldwide.
Sports team members– both kids (and adults) the world over– need pads of all kinds. Knee pads, shoulder pads, elbow pads, body pads. In our developed world, we all need “pads” to make our lives function– iPads, legal pads, seat pads, and many more. Menstrual pads make lives function too, especially if you’re a girl or woman in the third world. They can’t go to school without them. They get stuck in a stuffy room on a piece of cardboard for a week, without them. They lose hope and dignity without them.
What do we get without our “pads” of various types? We go out and buy new ones. This is not a viable option for so many when it comes to feminine hygiene. That’s where Days for Girls and the Put On Your Pads campaign comes in.
