    Shame, Stigma, and Normalization of Periods

    Shame, Stigma, and Normalization of Periods

    Libra synergy engaged! August’s creative powerhouses and fellow Libras Neddy and Ruby are on today’s episode talking about their personal and professional evolution of the normalization of periods–specifically their own…on social media. Working for a company like August has pushed them well past what they assumed their comfort zones to be, but it didn’t start out that way–it’s been a lot of awkward TikToking from semi-public areas, but the journey has rewarded them in ways they never could have imagined.

    Meet Ruby Moon + Importance of Accessible Education

    Meet Ruby Moon + Importance of Accessible Education

    You’ve undoubtedly seen Ruby Moon’s face (including those killer eyebrows) on August’s TikTok, but today you get to meet the person behind the social media account! Ruby’s in NYC for Team August week and she’s ready to share everything, starting with her first period story, where she shouted out the (open) bathroom door to her entire family that she had started menstruating. She also teaches us what it was like to grow up as a camp kid, how that influenced her studies and desired career path, and how it all eventually led straight to August.

    August Goes to Electric Forest

    August Goes to Electric Forest

    When August was offered an opportunity to pass out their tampons and pads at Electric Forest music festival, they jumped at the opportunity to share their products and take the team’s first official business trip. The unforeseen bonuses exceeded their expectations–they got into conversations about menstruation with all types of people, because, *spoiler alert* … tons of menstruators were menstruating and needed that freebie! The team also talks about getting #justiceforpads and how the news on the overturning of Roe v. Wade impacted their weekend as the news broke during their departure for Michigan.
