As a company, we provide women with products that help them get on top of their reproductive health. It’s our mission to do everything we can to help make the world safer for sexually active women. That is why today, upon Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation, we are donating $10,000 to RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network).
We believe survivors. We admire the bravery it takes for them to tell their stories, whether it’s to a friend, a therapist, or in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee while the whole world is watching. The last few weeks have been overwhelming for many of us. For victims of sexual assault and their families, it can be especially distressing.
On the day after the Ford / Kavanaugh hearings, the National Sexual Assault Hotline, which is operated by RAINN, received more calls in one day than ever before in its history, showing the power of women telling their stories. We fundamentally support the critical work organizations like RAINN are doing.
Because we believe survivors. We believe sharing our experiences can shift the weight of power that has kept so many of us silent. And we still believe that the future can be as bright as we want it to be if we keep fighting for what we believe in, in ways big and small, every single day.
