  Oops! I meant to say Pilot Project Location will be Announced. Sorry about that. We can’t just tell you right away.

Or somewhere in-between? You’ll have to wait a little longer to find out. Over the nextcontinue reading

It’s a sad fact that around the world millions of women are still made to feel shameful about their periods. For many, it goes beyond shame. For some it means a temporary banishment from their home.
