Since Diva's founding, menstrual equity has been a guiding philosophy of our organization. My personal mission since day one has been to lower access barriers to the products needed to care for one’s period, which is why Diva has donated tens of thousands of cups over the last 15 years.
We have come to realize, however, that simply donating products is not enough to eliminate period poverty or achieve true menstrual equity. Our DivaCares program was created in order to address many systemic issues, such as period poverty, with three main areas of action: education, advocacy and product access, to help create change in the lives of those who experience periods. We partner with organizations who champion menstrual equity every day, and we’re committed to a world where having a period doesn’t hold you back.
Looking to the future, DivaCares’ goal is to help build menstrual equity on a global scale. You can get started by reading more about what we and our great partners are doing. I hope you’ll join us in the fight for menstrual equity today!
