Single mother fights back against period-shaming with a tool that frees all women from the social stigma of period.
Mandy McKinsey was making dinner at home when suddenly, her 10-year-old daughter laughed at the sight of Mandy’s period stain on her skirt. A flashback came to her mind of the time she was bullied when she first got her period in high school.
“When I first got my period, I had no idea it left an obvious stain on my jeans. I was walking along the corridor when I suddenly felt the stares and laughter behind me. When I found out, I quickly wrapped my jacket around my waist and quietly asked my friend for a pad. But for the rest of the day, I noticed the guys were keeping their distance and throwing disgusted looks at me every few minutes. I remember feeling so ashamed and embarrassed, I wanted to disappear forever.” – Mandy McKinsey
Women being teased for menstruating
Menstruation is one of the most natural functions in the world. It is a symbol of femininity and fertility, a huge part of life for all women. Yet, for generations, menstruation has been stigmatized in our culture.
Women around the world are being bullied for having period, getting teased and jokes about sanitary wears and leaking, comments on their perceived mood that brings shame and embarrassment. Teenage girls who never know when they will experience their first cycle or have yet to adjust to their new biological changes, are isolated and bullied by their male schoolmates, damaging their confidence and self-esteem unknowingly.
Standing up against period-shaming
“This is known as period-shaming. And based on my experience, period-shaming is not to be taken lightly. I take it upon myself to help girls in school experiencing their first menstrual period and empower women of all ages around the world, because menstruation needs to be normalized and celebrated.” – Mandy McKinsey
