The Advocate Academy podcast, a production from the Women and Gender Resource Center at the University of Alabama. I tuned in on March 31 and listened to “Menstrual Hygiene Equity: An Interview with the Founding Members of “October 26: Driven by Women.”

Two young Black women, Bentasia Parker and Candace Turner, are on a mission to raise awareness about the importance of access to menstrual products, normalizing menstruation, and menstrual cycles.
