Welcome back my Clan of the Crave Bears! This is the place where we have a non-judgmental space to find out what our cravings really mean. So last week, I mentioned that I was taking a Summer hiatus. Well, a dear friend of mine talked me out of my hiatus! We have too much momentum going to take the Summer off!
Now today I am the Shame Slayer and we are talking about menstruation, and I encourage you to continue to play this episode even if your children or husband are in the room. It’s a very natural part of life and it played a part in all of us being here. So, let’s get rid of the shame surrounding menstruation and just talk about it openly and honestly.
Today’s guest is Miki Agarwal. Miki Agrawal is a force of nature. She was named 2015 Social Entrepreneur of the Year at the World Technology Awards and her Company THINX was named Time Magazine’s “25 Best New Inventions of 2015″. Miki was also the recipient of the TriBeCa Film Festival’s “Disruptive Innovation Award” and was named one of the “Top 20 Millenials on a Mission” by Forbes.
She is the CEO and Co-Founder of THINX, a high-tech, beautiful underwear solution for women to wear during their periods. She teamed up with AFRIpads in Uganda to fund a pack of reusable cloth pads for every underwear sold to get millions of girls back in school. To date, Miki and THINX have helped over 30,000 girls go back to school.
This girl has it going on! Thinx are “period proof panties”. You won’t believe how many girls miss school each year due to menstruation. This is an important product and can truly make a difference in the lives of girls. It’s time to end our body shaming around our periods.
