Everyone deserves to live in a healthy and safe environment. That environment includes where you live, work, play, and pray. We reject and actively push back against racist rhetoric, actions, policies and institutional oppression that leads to state-sanctioned brutality, gun violence, and harm that again and again assaults communities of color. We are committed to working for justice and equity, and are in solidarity with social, racial, and environmental justice organizations to build community, understanding and honest dialogue to address the root causes of violence, harm and hate.

Vaginal Health Week 2022

What is Vaginal Health Week?

Vaginal Health Week is an annual week of action hosted by Women’s Voices for the Earth to uplift honest and open conversations about menstruation and vaginal health. This year we’re highlighting new ingredient disclosure practices and period health policies that impact the accessiblity, affordability and safety of menstrual products. All week long we’ll be talking about these issues ​and sharing helpful resources. The week’s main event is our webinar on May 26th — What New Disclosure Requirements Reveal about Period Care Products. Join WVE’s Director of Science and Research, Alexandra Scranton, for a deep dive into our new report on product safety, transparency practices, and what new disclosure requirements have revealed about ingredients used in menstrual care products. Please RSVP today for this virtual event!

We invite all people who have experience with menstrual products and are impacted by vaginal health products. So invite your friends, family, and loved ones to join us during this week of learning, listening & action! THANK YOU for being here!

How are Menstrual and Intimate Care Products Regulated?

A look into last year’s event

Vaginal Health Panel — 2021

Last year’s Vaginal Health Week spotlighted intimate care products, from the history of these products to modern day marketing and cultural conversations about why we choose to use — or not use — wipes, washes, douches, spray, powders and more. The main event was a panel discussion with Dr. Ami Zota, M. Isabelle Chaudry, Dr. Astrid Williams, and Dr. Ebere Azumah. Please enjoy a recording of last year’s panel discussion.
