We are Women Period!

Period Pride Keep our Girls in School
Period Pride Keep our Girls in School (1/1)

I found a woman who is just like me, filled with passion and zeal to do good, one who strives to work with a fellow woman, Period! Trine Angeline Sig. When two women from two different Geographical Locations and backgrounds agree to work together even if they have never met, they have agreed to set aside their difference and bring change and hope to young girls across the globe.

We are the menstruation women, fighting for the silenced voices of our girls, our hearts beat together with our girls' as they call for free menstrual material.  One year has passed and our bond has strengthened because we understood one thing about life, and that is we are women Period! No more race, no more country of origin, no more background history and no more financial status its just women working together for the greater good. Our girls come first, their education matters more than who we choose to work with based on what they offer or where they are from, we work together because we are Women, Period! Women who have to build an understanding that we all share in the natural experience of menstruation, this makes us one.

We would like to see many women across the globe emulate our working relationship, uniting nations, and communities toward one common goal that is to end period poverty. We are two women who have never met yet are winning awards together. Women have the power to bond and build something so great regardless of their differences. We are the love that is what we have always been, Women, Period!

Dear Thelma, Thank you for sharing your story about your collaboration with Trine! Love these stories of World Pulse women working together across the globe. It's so important for girls to have their dignity so they can stay in school with free menstrual hygiene supplies. Thank you. It would also be delightful to hear more details about your collaboration with Trine if you decide to share another update.

Ohh Thelma sweetheart...
Together we will inspire more women to move, to do something, to take up the MHM cause as their own or to join our movement Period Pride.
Power Together!
