Tea with Mama Cash: Sanitize this! (On blood)

Happy is cringing, but that's exactly why this time on Tea with Mama Cash we're talking about blood

Our Executive Director Zohra Moosa and Director of Programmes Happy Mwende Kinyili unpack the shame around menstrual bleeding, discuss the tampon tax, debate menstrual cups, and take a look at feminist activism re: menstruation around the world. Plus: tune in to learn why Zohra's pet peeve is the phrase ‘menstrual hygiene’ and why, as Happy explains, that’s related to - yep, you guessed it - colonialism.
