Women’s health and hygiene is still a taboo in many countries, making access to sanitary products problematic. Girlythings is an app providing women with and without disabilities information about menstruation and delivering sanitary products for free. Using quizzes and feedback questionnaires, users earn points to order sanitary kits and products from company partners. Girlythings builds women’s knowledge and confidence, eliminating payment and providing safe sanitary products for women who cannot afford or access them.
