RACKET. is asking NYMF attendees to bring a donation of menstrual hygiene products during the last week of our Festival. Yep, menstrual hygiene products (tampons, extra absorbent THIN pads, panty liners, wipes, cups, etc). You may have seen a recent news story or two about the growing movement to break the taboo around menstrual health. We're making progress; New York state just repealed the 'tampon tax,' saving 'menstruators' millions of dollars!
This is a great step forward, but the stigma against menstrual health still poses a significant problem in New York and beyond. People who struggle with economic security often have to put menstrual hygiene products lowest on the list. Food pantries run out of menstrual hygiene products more quickly than food.
RACKET. is fighting to change this, aiming to literally make a racket while exposing and eliminating menstrual taboos and advocating for equal access to products for women, trans men, and gender nonconforming populations in need here in NYC.
