Since I launched zeropad, it’s been incredibly important to me that they be inclusive: pads for people who need them, regardless of size, gender, ability, sex, or age.
The feedback I’ve received from the community has been amazing, and I’m grateful to be part of this supportive group of people.
A few months ago, I asked for feedback on a line of menstrual pads made with Wonder Woman fabric. I had the fabric on hand, leftover from masks, and it seemed like a good use of it. For context, I didn’t have any other leftover superhero fabric on hand.
However, my concern was that it might be interpreted as being in some way exclusive.
The majority of feedback I received was that Wonder Women represents a strong, powerful, superhero - but not one that is exclusive to those who identify as womxn.
As a result of this feedback, I decided to move forward with the project.
Tomorrow I will be launching these pads. But I wanted to post this message today, in support of everyone who menstruates - please know that I see you, and I hear you.
We live in a world of grey, and I am trying to navigate it as best I can, as I know you all are too.
