The Tampon Thread (Episode 91)

In this Episode

If you have a menstrual cycle, do you find that male family members often tell you to “stock up” on menstrual products? No? Us either. That’s why this week, we need to take a deep dive into why Shaunna’s Dad told her to go to the drug store and fill that cart.

Right now in the US, there is a shortage of menstrual products available for purchase. Using this as a jumping-off point, Shaunna and Lisa discuss systems and how the interworking of these systems cause problems like this – to disproportionally affect historicallyandcurrentlyexcludedpeople. Moving even further from the tampon example, the duo makes reference to systems like redlining, Jim Crow, and even a lack of lap pools. These systems work to create and contribute to systemic discrimination that is historically and contextually rooted.
