TidePod SGA Segment #1: Discussing Menstrual Equity


Valerie Wang

The TidePod, which was started in early 2019, is currently in its sixth season. Graphic designed by Valerie Wang.

In the first episode of the brand new TidePod SGA segment, hosts Sabrena Carver-Tchagna and Lucy Meyer discuss an upcoming act that could impact Montgomery County schools, the Menstrual Equity for All Act of 2019. At RM, the SGA is working with the Girl Up club to campaign for menstrual equity. This campaign by Girl Up will include donating menstrual products to be used in the restrooms at RM until the bill is passed, signing a petition to express support for the bill, and writing letters to representatives in Congress in support of the bill. Ita Teta, the leader of RM’s Girl Up club, joins Carver-Tchagna and Meyer on today’s episode to discuss this act, how RM students are advocating for it, and why it is important for schools to implement.
