The Desai Foundation

Half of the world’s population gets their period. Women in India and South East Asia are done staying quiet about their periods! P&G sells their menstrual products as “Whisper” in India and South East Asia, and it’s promoting the social stigma around periods. If P&G wants to keep making ads talking about women’s empowerment, it’s time for them to put their money where their mouth is, and change the name. Visit & join the movement because #wearedonewhispering
