Episode 193: Helping Women Period – Lysne Tait

This week’s episode of The 1 Girl Revolution Podcast features Lysne Tait, co-founder of Helping Women Period – a nonprofit organization that provides no-cost menstrual products to those experiencing homelessness or low-income disparity.  

Lysne and her friend Amy Stephenson learned about period poverty and how many women and girls lacked access to critical monthly period products – and they decided to do something about it. What started out as a period product drive has now grown and evolved to be a thriving nonprofit organization that has collected and distributed over 4 MILLION products to women and girls in need. Helping Women Period works to end period poverty through partnerships, advocacy, donations and education. 

Lysne has become a nationally recognized leader in the fight to end period poverty and has been featured in Oprah’s O Magazine, TeenVogue, Today.com, Forbes, and more.
