Taking a Stand for Menstrual Equity

“Periods Gone Public: Taking a Stand for Menstrual Equity”
NCJW/Essex Dessert and Dialogue to Feature

Jennifer Weiss-Wolf – Author, Activist, Social Justice Advocate

Livingston, NJ, March 21, 2018 –The National Council of Jewish Women, Essex County Section (NCJW/Essex) will present a special evening event, Dessert and Dialogue, featuring author Jennifer Weiss-Wolf, on the evening of April 25, 2018. The program will be held at Temple Sharey Tefilo-Israel, 432 Scotland Road, South Orange, NJ, at 7:00 pm.

Jennifer Weiss-Wolf is a leader in the movement to make feminine hygiene products affordable, and accessible.  Her work to end the “tampon tax” and advocate for legislation that addresses the lack of menstrual equity in our communities has put her on the map as one of the nation’s “badass menstrual activists” by the publication Bustle. Menstrual equity is, in Weiss-Wolf’s opinion, a “gateway issue for feminism” and one that is intensely relatable by all women.

NCJW/Essex operates a community service project called “The Period.Project” which collects and distributes feminine hygiene supplies to local agencies and clients of its Center for Women. “Our community service work has shown us that more needs to be done to address the often overlooked issue of menstrual equity,” says Shari Harrison, President of NCJW/Essex. “We are thrilled to welcome Jennifer Weiss-Wolf to educate us and inspire us to continue engaging on this important issue.”

Ground Control

Dear Mr. Vice President,

 

I heard your speech last week and was inspired.  I am writing to formally enlist in the United States Space Force. 

 

Although eager to serve, I am a little surprised to learn that this next important branch of the armed services will be formed to protect our interests in outer space and not cyberspace.  It seems to me that given the ...

Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man Kid

I am an artist.  It says so on my T-shirt.

My colorful shirt, which significantly inflates my position in life, confers great status.  For one, it announces that I am a musical performer at the up and coming Montclair Jazz Festival.  This separates me from the thousands of other festival goers who only get to enjoy a great day of music, not play it.  

More importantly, ...
