What's Hiding in Your Menstrual Products? The Truth About Pads, Tampons & the Reproductive Health Industry

What's Hiding in Your Menstrual Products? The Truth About Pads, Tampons & the Reproductive Health Industry

Healthy menstruation is, arguably, one of the most important, yet the most overlooked, aspects of our health and the body-positivity movement.  We have been taught to believe that it is largely an inconvenience to bleed: painful, messy, and embarrassing. For centuries, the patriarchy taught us to believe that bleeding people are "dirty", unholy, and even dangerous.
