10 days left of our #Buy1Give2 campaign. By choosing a Ruby Cup in May, you automatically donate two more to girls in need for every Ruby Cup you buy. 💙 .
Every donated Ruby Cup is distributed with an educational workshop, where they learn about menstruation, harmful menstrual myths and how to use a Ruby Cup :) and the best news: 8 out of 10 girls keep using the cup and report feeling more confident and comfortable during their period 💙🔴🏵
.
Why is this a matter you should care about?
Because 2 out of 3 girls in informal settlements in #Kenya can't afford pads or #tampons when they need them. A #menstrualcup is a product they can use for the next 10 years, helping them feel confident and safe during their period. .

"The Period Monologues" is a piece on how Yashasvini Rajeshwa acquires Fluency in talking periods based on her experience in conducting a study as part of her Master's thesis on @feminisminindia
https://feminisminindia.com/2017/06/08/period-monologues-talking-period/

She says " women speak of their periods in passive voice, as removed from themselves. The period is the actor, we are the actant. It happens to us, we deal with it. It comes, it is gotten, it is a state that you go through or something that happens to you (not an action that you do). More often than not, women subconsciously distanced themselves from their uterine linings. I am not my period, and thank goodness for that"

Thanks a bunch @helik_lunette for this amazeballs care package from @lunettecup! @maudhui_, Julz and I are delighted! Can't wait to try it all out.
So last month was actually the first time I ever tried a menstrual cup, courtesy of @lunettecup. It was a learning process. My flow requires the bigger size, which I have just received. Using a cup actually allows you to measure your flow in ml. Pretty freaky! The first few times the cup I'd get a leak, take out the cup and it wasn't quite full. Then I was told to put it all the way in, then slightly pull it out to ensure it's completely opened up and suctioned. Then I had better results. The bigger cup should serve me better. #breakthebloodytaboo #periodsarecool #woman #menstrualhealth #menstrualcup

My Lunette package has just arrived and there are so many beautiful things in it. It feels like Christmas for my ovaries, uterus and PMS combined.
Thank you #lunettecup for this amazing opportunity and for creating high-quality, vegan, eco-friendly menstrual products that #breakthebloodytaboo and make periods easier and more fun.

Menstruation is a healthy beautiful part of our bodies. You don't have to shout girl power from the mountain tops but take comfort and find peace in your own beautiful body! But... if you want to shout I'm right there with you! Periods are not dirty, shameful, or unsanitary. Treat your body well and she will reward you! I am so grateful for the deeper connection and understanding that reusables have helped me find with my own cycle #breakthebloodytaboo #MenstruationMatters #periods #paddict #clothpads #beyourself #beyourownkindofbeautiful @beachbottom @rehanajomeen @amthecozy @clothaddictmama

The past days were filled with workshops, meetings and new ideas!

We can't believe that there are 4026 #menstrualcups ready to go to girls who need them. .
If you are one of the wonderful people who helped support our #Buy1Give2 campaign, please tag yourself in the comments 💙

These 4026 Ruby Cups were donated because if your support and will go to projects in Uganda, Tanzania and Kenya to girls who can't afford menstrual products. When they get a Ruby Cup they are provided with a healthy period product that frees them from the economical burden to buy pads with money they don't have, and gives them the confidence and possiblity to go to school every day of the month. During every Ruby Cup distribution the girls get an educational workshop to learn how to use the cup and to understand their bodies. Knowledge is power and the information about their own bodies empowers them to make better decisions for themselves.
The menstrual health trainers bust harmful myths and tell them that having periods is nothing to feel ashamed of.

Proud to be a bloodywoman!
Ich bin stolz eine #bloodywoman zu sein, weil mich mein Zyklus und meine Regel daran erinnert, dass alles im Wandel ist und es immer wieder Neuanfänge gibt, dass ich Frau bin, dass es Höhen und Tiefen gibt, dass ich meinen Körper spüre und dass ich auf mich achten muss! .
.
Schade, dass eine so natürlich Sache noch immer nicht entabuisiert ist und viele Hemmungen im Alltag durch dieses Tabu entstehen! @erdbeerwoche_ .
.
Warum seid ihr eine stolze #bloodywoman?
Und habt ihr schon die #runtermitdertamponsteuer Petition unterzeichnet?

“Millions of girls miss out on their education, just because of their period. I’m joining the #Post1Give1 campaign to give a girl a chance. By posting this picture, I’ve just donated @RubyCup to a girl in need, and you should too. All submissions enter the Ruby Goodie Bag Give Away.” #menstrualhealth #endtheperiodtaboo #breakthebloodytaboo

This is today's winner :) Congratulations @primadonner
Menstruation is still a delicate subject. Just as delicate as this #origami bird. We have to teach society to accept, normalise and treasure it. All of your submission are a step towards this goal: you're talking and posting about periods, using your accounts to help a girl in need. #RubyCommunity, you're awesome 💞 we invite everybody to join the #Post1Give1 campaign and post something red. More info on how that can change a girl's life in our bio link :) #dogood #menstruationmaters #breakthebloodytaboo #letstalkperiods #menstruation #periods

#HappyMonday!
Red has become an important color this month. Why?
1) because by posting something red and joining our #Post1Give1 campaign, you're donating a Ruby Cup to a girl in need. 💕

2) because periods are red. Time to face the true color of #menstruation and make it normal 🔴 #breakthebloodytaboo

3) we launched a beautiful new color: the Ruby Cup #Red...just like your period 🌹 now in our shop and for every cup you buy, we'll donate another to a girl in need.
So keep those red posts coming, spread #awareness and #periodpower 💃
