JIGGY X The Pad Project X Maliha Abidi
“A period should end a sentence, not a girl’s education.” The Pad Project, the nonprofit behind 2019 Academy Award-winning documentary short Period. End of Sentence., was founded by a high school teacher and her students when they learned that girls around the world miss school because they lack access to a safe means of managing menstruation.
We take a multi-pronged approach to achieving menstrual equity by partnering with grassroots organizations in the U.S. and around the world to establish pad-making enterprises, distribute menstrual products, and implement menstrual health education programs.
50% of the proceeds will be donated to our international pad-making programs that employ and empower women and girls. To learn more, visit www.thepadproject.org.
To create this beautiful portrait of a woman hosting a menstrual health education workshop in Tanzania, we partnered with Pakistani-American artist Maliha Abidi. Maliha’s art focuses on advocating for social justice issues like women’s rights, girls’ education, and mental health. Maliha is dedicated to achieving menstrual equity, and declares, “whether it is due to unaffordable period products or to menstrual stigma, people shouldn’t have to feel anxiety whenever something as natural as periods occur.”
