Kimberly-Clark’s Kotex® brand is built on a promise to women that a period should never stand in the way of her progress. As this year’s Menstrual Hygiene Day (MHD) approaches, Kotex is hosting a global conversation with its NGO partners about how they will continue to challenge period perceptions and champion a better future for women and girls.

‘Igniting a New Cycle’ will take place via a Facebook Live event on Kimberly-Clark’s global Facebook channel (@KimberlyClarkCorp) on Thursday, May 27 at 10 a.m. ET. The discussion will feature speakers from Kimberly-Clark, Plan International and WASH United:

    • Samia Chehab, General Manager – Latin America, Adult & Feminine Care
