Kicking off the activities in New York City, CouldYou? hosted the debut of the “The Period Monologues,” an evocative performance bringing to light the stories and struggles of women and girls facing period poverty around the world and their experience with the CouldYou? Menstrual Cup. The monologues, produced by Brooklyn Producer/actor Ella Smith and hosted by Refugee Education Activist and writer Mary Maker, were performed by Wonu Ogunfowora*, Chantae Miller, Madeline Barr, and Joydie Kamara at the Lower East Side Girls Club on Monday, May 20, 2024.
