International Women's Day
Benefitting The Pad Project
On Tuesday, March 8th, we’ll be hosting an event at our Melrose store in support of The Pad Project, a nonprofit dedicated to ending period stigma and ensuring access to period care for all. The organization—which also developed the 2019 Academy Award-winning Netflix doc, Period. End of Sentence.—strives to provide menstrual equity with period-pad access, washable pad programs, and sexual and reproductive health education—around 2.3 billion people lack access to basic sanitation services. A large part of its work is breaking the stigma many women face when it comes to their periods, especially in low-income communities around the world. That’s why we’re so proud to be hosting this event with The Pad Project on International Women’s Day—fittingly, the theme this year is to #BREAKTHEBIAS and forge women’s equality.
The event will be hosted by Stacey Sher and her daughter Maggie Brown, executive producers of Period. End of Sentence., along with actress Ashley Greene—who co-cofounded the hormonal health brand, Our Hummingway, which allows women to reach whole cycle wellness through education, community and research-backed products. Fun fact: Greene co-founded the brand with her sister-in-law, Olivia Khoury (similar to our story here at Veronica Beard).
We hope you’ll join us on Tuesday, the 8th, at 8471 Melrose Place. The event will take place from 6:30-8:30 PM, with 10% of all proceeds going towards The Pad Project. #VBGIVESBACK
