Environmenstrual concerns

Environmenstrual concerns

Hi, my name is Lilly and I’m on my period.  A statement to stop any conversation dead in its tracks.  So, I ask why, in 2020, with 26% of the global population of menstruating age, is there still a taboo and embarrassment around periods?  Why do we shy away from talking openly about something that...
