Menstrual Market 101

 

Our mission is to smash period stigma and misinformation through intergenerational storytelling, events, and the arts.

Menstrual Market was founded with a mission to erase period stigma and lack of menstrual health awareness in communities of color.  Since 2023, we've been partnering with like-minded individuals and organizations to make our vision a reality. We're proud to say that our mission have given many BIPOC people with periods a safe space to share their stories and a chance to transform generational stigmas in their communities.
 

Our work is fueled by an unshakable belief in opportunity for women and people with periods. We put our hearts into each of our efforts and celebrate every step forward we make! Thanks to our dedicated staff of volunteers and donors, we're creating a future that holds a greater tolerance for menstruation, more access to health information, and better educated communities.

How we smash period stigma: Our Pillars

INTERGENERATIONALSTORYTELLING

By connecting the period stories within our families, we create future change. Black and Latino families are the most unlikely groups to discuss periods within their families. By encouraging generations of women to talk about periods together, we open up the conversation and help families recognize hereditary menstrual related health issues sooner.

THE ART OF MENSTRUATION

Through poetry, books, and art, we give voice to a taboo topic that doesn't have one. By producing media, exhibits, and stages for artists to safely express their period experiences, we reduce period shame and create a safe space for others to share their stories in whatever form that works best for them.
