    For years, the topic of menstruation and menstrual health was stigmatized and viewed as a taboo topic. However, thanks to advocacy on social media through the arts and beyond, more and more changemakers are starting to break that status quo. Today, we celebrate the menstrual advocates who constantly speak out about the importance of menstrual equity, health, and education around the world. To show your appreciation, tag a menstrual advocate in the comments!
