New York Times: Helping Women and Girls. Period.
Jennifer Weiss-Wolf, director of special projects and deputy director of development for the Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Law

“…Around the globe, managing menstruation can be a debilitating, even deadly, problem — fueled by a combination of poverty, misinformation, stigma, and superstition. … When it comes to advancing women’s rights and choices, and defining what it means to embrace a proactive reproductive justice agenda, tampon drives are a remarkably easy but infinitely meaningful way to help women take charge, and take care, of their bodies and their lives” (1/28).
