Aug 16, 2019 Season 1 Episode 11
Anusha, Tickles, Pokes

Meet three menstruators on a mission! Anusha, a campus and national organizer for period.org, and Tickles and Pokes (of the project Tickles and Pokes) all work tirelessly to end period poverty and ensure that menstrual supplies are available for free to all menstruators, like toilet paper. 

Did you know that 1 in 10 girls can't afford to buy menstrual products in western countries like the UK and US. And it's much higher in other countries. Every day, children miss school because of period poverty. This causes them to fall behind academically. 40% of girls have used toilet paper or newspaper or other unsanitary products because they couldn’t afford menstrual products. This must end. 35 states in the United States tax menstrual supplies as "luxury items".

Join the menstrual movement and learn about the National Period Day in October!
