Menstruation Nation Story
In 2017, Tait Gamble, a then-17-year-old high school student, began research for a program that would supply free pads and tampons within her school. Upon discovering The Period Purse, Tait began running product drives, and launched "Menstruation Nation" as a way to reduce the stigma around menstrual health.
In 2018, Tait won two graduating awards for leadership and community service. As a result of her commitment, Menstruation Nation continues to expand into schools across Ontario, educating high school students about period health and wellness.
