Vaginal Health Week is an annual week of action hosted by Women’s Voices for the Earth to uplift honest and open conversations about menstruation and vaginal health. This year we’re highlighting new ingredient disclosure practices and period health policies that impact the accessibility, affordability and safety of menstrual products. All week long we’ll be talking about these issues and sharing helpful resources. The week’s main event is our webinar on May 26th — What New Disclosure Requirements Reveal about Period Care Products. Join WVE’s Director of Science and Research, Alexandra Scranton, for a deep dive into our new report on product safety, transparency practices, and what new disclosure requirements have revealed about ingredients used in menstrual care products. Please RSVP today for this virtual event!
We invite all people who have experience with menstruation, are impacted by vaginal health, and are interested in learning more about period product safety, affordability and accessibility. So invite your friends, family, and loved ones to join us during this week of learning, listening & action! THANK YOU for being here!

Following new disclosure requirements out of New York State, we’re seeing positive shifts in transparency practices across the industry and are getting NEW information on many ingredients found in tampons, pads, period underwear, menstrual cups and discs. Many of these ingredients are being disclosed for the first time. Learn more.
Menstrual and intimate care products are used on and in some of the most sensitive body tissue, yet there is very little regulation over the safety of these products, and in many cases corporations are not even required to tell you what ingredients are used in these products. Learn more. Learn more.
