In a world where progress is measured by the steps towards true equality, the For My Sisters team are playing a pivotal role by ensuring safe and convenient access to menstrual products for women everywhere – from school bathroom to boardroom, from sports grounds to remote mine sites.
Inspired by a true story of human generosity, a friend of For My Sisters founder and CEO Megan Harrison was caught off guard with a surprise period and didn’t have tampons with her. Fortunately, she found a pack of tampons in a bathroom cupboard with a sticky-note attached that simply said ‘for my sisters’.
With a long-standing career in Occupational Health and Safety in the mining sector, Megan is passionate about tackling the challenge of ending period panic for good at schools, in the workplace and wherever else women might find themselves in need.
“Having your period should never be a barrier to women participating in and engaging in mining roles. The provision of essential period products will go a long way to removing the stigma, panic and embarrassment associated with getting your period on-site,” said Ms Harrison.
“and the same should apply across all places where women learn, work and play,” added Ms Harrison.
For My Sisters’ period dispensers are more than just products; they dispel taboos, shatter limitations, and pave the way for a brighter, more equal future. The impact ripples beyond the confines of restrooms and facilities, sparking conversations. For My Sisters dispensers are symbols of progress and empowerment.
Founded in 2022 by women in mining, For My Sisters is already working across the educational, mining, and corporate sectors.
Thank you For My Sisters for involving BCJ Plastic Products in this worthy cause and supporting local businesses such as ours in your project.
