The Language of Period Products: Changing the Conversation with Our Customers
Who / what / when / where / why and how are we talking about period products? Discourses around gender identity, gender dynamics, and women's rights and health are more politically charged than ever, which is why it is crucial to be speaking to customers in language that reflects who they are, where they are and what they want versus need. The global use case of period products and increase in customers seeking solutions that cater to their unique health and wellness needs across their lifecourse means moving the vernacular away from outdated classifications and reorienting ourselves towards a new paradigm of 'cycle care' and thus an updated vocabulary of terms.
