NYU Women’s Herstory Month Bleeding Freely Event


Key points from the Event:

“[The movement against] the sales tax is great, people pay attention, they get why it’s fair or not fair, but the goal here really is to create a norm of menstrual equity,” Ms. Weiss-Wolf said.

“What ends up happening is because we don’t talk about [menstruation] at a young age,” she said. “Everyone’s so awkward about it, so then we feel this body hatred.”

For Ms. Weiss-Wolf, talking about the issue itself has been empowering. “If [people] are uncomfortable, it’s their problem,” she said. “I just keep going.”
