3. Vagina Vigilante. Done.
Let us tell you the story of how women were once considered full, equal human beings in the city of New York... way back when vaginas roamed the Earth.
Sometimes you come across a lady so hardcore, all you can do is bow down to her excellence and write about her in your weekly newsletter. Enter the Vagina Vigilante (yikes, not literally). Ok, let’s back up for a sec; remember those THINX ads that were initially rejected by a representative for the MTA? Well, a lot of brilliant, beautiful, angry women raised their voices in protest. One woman in particular, though (NYC native Yeni Sleidi) went the extra mile, doling out free tampons and informational fliers to subway riders while wearing a homemade vagina mask and headpiece. Pinch you, you’re dreaming? Nope, this woman is real! And to all the people out there who got pissed off and supported us through that whole MTA debacle: we salute you! It’s because of y’all that the MTA finally approved our proposal, and that our ads will officially be unfolding this Monday! The love in #periodpower is too real.
