Recognize May 28th as Menstrual Hygiene Day

I invite you to join me in cosponsoring my resolution recognizing Menstrual Hygiene Day on May 28th. The goal of Menstrual Hygiene Day is to ensure that no woman or girl is limited by something as natural as her period, to promote good menstrual
hygiene management for all women and girls, and to work to change negative social norms around menstruation. You may ask, why is the day commemorated on the 28th of May? Because the average duration of a menstrual cycle is 28 days, and on average,
women and girls menstruate for 5 days per month. Hence 28-5 or May 28th.

Menstrual Equity For All Act of 2019

I invite you to cosponsor the Menstrual Equity For All Act of 2019.  Menstruation hygiene items, such as pads, tampons, cups, and liners, are necessary purchases for the vast majority of women. Popular culture would have you believe these
products are ubiquitous and cheap, but in truth, many women face difficulty when it comes to access and affordability. I previously wrote an op-ed in Marie Claire outlining many of these issues, which you can read here for more information:
