Men Get Periods, Too, So Always Is Removing The Venus Symbol From Their Pads
But now one company is support the fight towards making the process that much more inclusive: On Tuesday (October 22) Procter & Gamble announced it will be removing a Venus symbol from Always brand sanitary pads.
In a statement provided to CNN , Always announced it was removing the symbol from its period product packaging, including on pad and tampon wrappers.
The symbol was a relatively new addition to packaging, by several account; it had appeared as early as last year on products, according to NBC News, and has continued to be a topic of conversation on Twitter.
"We're also committed to diversity and inclusion, and after hearing from many people across genders and age groups, we realized that not everyone who has a period and needs to use a pad identifies as female.
Joanna McClintick, youth sexual health coordinator at The Center, told MTV News that decision is particularly significant given how impactful a period can be for transgender and non-binary people.
