Ever wonder why there are free tampons in various bathrooms on campus? Or what the pink tax is? Come out for 2018’s first MADtalk! Join WRTC and PPA major Magi Linscott to learn more about menstrual equity and the “Free the Tampon” campaign that resulted in JMU offering free tampons in restrooms on campus.

Menstrual equity refers to a growing movement by activists to reduce the stigma associated with menstruation and to increase access to menstrual hygiene products for vulnerable populations.

Sponsored by the Madison Honors Leadership Council. MADtalks are free and open to the public.
