Dignity Period is thrilled to be selected as one of five Ladue News Charity Award winners. As part of the award, Dignity Period will receive an Instagram takeover and recognition on the Ladue News site. Thank you for voting for Dignity Period. As a small organization, opportunities for recognition in the St. Louis community make a huge difference in letting people know about our programs in St. Louis and beyond.
New Research Published
A Dignity Period sponsored research paper entitled "Menstruation is a Fearful Thing," was recently published in the International Journal of Women's Health, by Balem Dimtsu. Balem is a midwife at Ayder Hospital and the College of Health Sciences, in Mekelle, Ethiopia, who has been working on her PhD. DP made a $5,000 grant to support her work on menstrual hygiene research in Tigray several years ago. She has persevered throughout the war and is now in the process of publishing the three papers. Congratulations on publishing this important research!
Dignity Period is proud to partner with local St. Louis non-profit, The Collective Thread, to produce pads for U.S. distribution
Where do we source our reusable period kits, you ask? Right here in St. Louis, through our awesome partnership with The Collective Thread. The Collective Thread provides free sewing classes and small batch manufacturing, providing training and job opportunities to people in St. Louis.
