We’re all feminists according to Dior and let the ladies clad in pussy cat hats tell it, we’re all fighting for the same cause. That cause should be something that includes all women, right? The fight should be one that ensures all women are cared for. In full transparency, I struggle with feminism and what it represents because I don’t think its basic tenets include inclusivity. In fact there are large portions of women who are left out, but I’ve partnered with a company who seeks to fix that because every woman deserves a #fearlessperiod.
Cora Women was co-founded by Molly Hayward after traveling abroad where she discovered that girls were missing countless days of school because of the lack of supplies available to them during their cycles. That is not what feminism is about. These are the causes that should also matter among women. Because all women deserve to have comfortable, affordable, periods – it’s our right. In our society the word “period” and menstrual cycle causes such an uproar yet it’s an integral part of womanhood. The fear, ignorance, and shame surrounding periods should cease and Cora is doing the work to ensure all women have access to the necessities they need to get them through the month, fearlessly.
All women deserve a better, safer, healthier experience of their periods. – Cora WomanClick to tweet
How Cora Works:
Cora is a subscription service that provides supplies needed for 3 months worth of cycles. With each month purchased by you, a woman in a developing country also gets the supplies she needs. This is amazing. Because if we’re being honest – we all forget to re-up. You’ve been there, out and about when suddenly, though you know it’s coming, you’re a mess and you’ve got nothing on you. Cora makes sure you’re always prepared with a handy carrying box that’s beautiful and discreet. I’d also like to give a huge thank you to the design team who made the packaging suitable for a grown up. Because seriously, what’s with all the neon on tampons? Black is where it’s at.
When you subscribe to Cora know that you’re getting a fully customizable box with organic cotton tampons housed in BPA-free plastic applicators. No more unknown chemicals going where they shouldn’t. Your supplies will arrive every 3-months packaged in a sleek black box based on your selections and needs. Plus, when you sign up you’ll receive a signature kit that includes a leather carrying case and individually wrapped tampons to share in case you know a sister who got caught without. All this for as low as $9-$18 a month! Seriously – it’s a steal and genius.
I’m going to be giving away one signature kit + a 3 month supply of Cora tampons to one of you, because I’m not one to hoard a good thing! To enter the giveaway:

There’s no reason periods should be associated with suffering any more – here’s to #fearlessperiods for all women! That’s real feminism.
