Our “Stick With It” conversation series on the Top of Mind podcast continues with The Period Project founder Emily Bell McCormick’s story of realizing some common misunderstandings that prevented male legislators from taking menstrual public health policy needs seriously. Once she took the time to really listen to the concerns lawmakers had passing a law to make period products available for free in public schools and state buildings, she was better able to address their misconceptions and get the law passed. Podcast Guest: Emily Bell McCormick, founder of The Policy Project (Teen Health Centers and The Period Project) Top of Mind would love to hear your Stick With It story.
