Period emoji: our next submission
We still love our period pants. A lot. But we think the best way to get a period emoji now is to ask the Unicode Consortium (the official body that manages emojis worldwide) for our blood drop to be included instead.
We’ll be sending a new submission – with the hope we might finally have a period emoji for girls and women everywhere.
Putting an end to period taboos
"We should be made to talk about periods instead of hiding them away. I don’t think it’s something we should be ashamed of." - Kelsey, 14, UK
