    1A with Joshua Johnson Why Periods Are Political: The Fight For Menstrual Equity It's hard to fight for a cause if it can't be discussed above a whisper. But the voices of a growing number of activists here and abroad are getting louder in the fight for what's being called menstrual equity. On any given day, more than 800 million girls and women around the world are menstruating. And for many of them, in the U.S. and elsewhere, it's a problem - sometimes with life-or-death consequences. Poor girls and women often are unable to afford menstrual products and many have limited access to toilets or clean water. In some cultures, females on their period are forced to live apart from their families. In July a menstruating teenager in Nepal died from snakebite in the cowshed where she was sequestered. In the U.S. a movement is gaining steam to eliminate the sales tax for tampons and pads and to ensure period products are provided to girls in public schools and homeless shelters all part of the fight for menstrual equity.
