FemmeCare Artist Showcase by Gloria Zingales

After months of hard work, I am so excited to announce the next FemmeCare event: an artist showcase and discussion. 

We teamed up with some of the best and most innovative women in the business for feminine hygiene products and feminist activism. LOLA, THINX, Got a Girl Crush and Gurlstalk have all helped to make this exciting event possible.

Taking place on Sunday February 21st, 2016, this event will center around three main goals:

-collecting feminine hygiene product donations to provide women in need with basic healthcare.

-breaking the taboo surrounding menstruation through discussion. 

-showcasing and celebrating artwork from seven young women artists.

FemmeCare Drive by Gloria Zingales

This Saturday, November 7th I will be hosting a feminine hygiene product drive for homeless women in New York City. This drive is something I've been thinking about since the spring and was first inspired by the movement in London called The Homeless Period. My goal in creating this drive was to help foster a sense of solidarity amongst all woman through breaking the taboo surrounding cycles and menstruation. As women, we are made to feel that our cycles should not be discussed and are gross leading us to ignore a major difficulty that homeless women face. It is important to help girls and women everywhere to feel safe and comfortable within their own bodies. Periods are a sign of health and life! Let's celebrate them and help each other out!  

The drive was recently sponsored by menstrual cup brand Lunacups ! I am beyond honored and excited. 

Events of the day were covered by two local NYU newspapers: Washington Square News and The Odyssey

Our flyer was designed by the incredible San Francisco based artist Lea Carey
