Our giveback program smashes shame around bodies and reproductive health.
Alongside our partners (and with your support!) we’re fighting for better access to puberty education, amplifying grassroots activism, and donating our undies and time. When you purchase Thinx (BTWN) you’re helping give life to our programming and initiatives — thank you! Check out how you’ve made an impact below:
Advocating for equity
We’re pushing back against discriminatory policies, promoting inclusivity, and moving the needle on menstrual equity so that every person has access to the products they need to reach their full potential.
Today, 1 in 5 students struggle to afford period products or are unable to purchase them at all, and 84% of young people have either missed class or know someone who has missed class due to a lack of access. It’s time for a change. This year, with the support of PERIOD and other members of our United for Access coalition, we’re elevating menstrual equity to the presidential stage through our Thinx2020 campaign.
Join us in calling on every 2020 presidential candidate and member of Congress to prioritize menstrual equity and end period poverty once and for all.
Educating future generations
The EveryBody education program is an inclusive medically accurate, hands-on curriculum designed by certified teachers and health experts. To implement the program, we partner with schools, after-school programs, and youth-serving nonprofits (and psst it’s free for educators!).
EveryBody is an opportunity for young people to learn about their changing bodies in a safe, empowered space. We’ve developed thoughtful programming with input from inclusive sex educators and an adolescent reproductive health specialist.
Now, if your eyebrow didn’t raise at “medically accurate,” it should: of the 24 states in the U.S. that mandate sexual education, only 13 require this information to be backed by science. We won’t be satisfied until all 50 states prioritize factual, unbiased puberty education.
