This International Women’s Day we spoke with two young ladies who graduated from high school just two years ago and are already running their own business with a very important mission.
Instead of enjoying their gap year by treating themselves, last year, friends Eloise and Isobel began developing their organisation: TABOO.
TABOO aims to provide menstrual health products to women and girls in developing nations where menstruation is considered dirty.
“It is not fair that these girls and women are forced to be ostracised once a month from school, work or social interactions, simply because of their period” their website read.
“Our vision is to sell sanitary pads and tampons to women in Australia, using all profits to ensure that women around the world have access to sanitary care”.
This morning, the Hit Network's Amos, Cat & Angus spoke to co-founder and director Eloise to discuss TABOO’s vision.
