UnTabooed is committed to breaking the taboo surrounding menstruation by providing menstrual health education and sustainable menstrual products to women in need, and promoting conversation among people everywhere.
UnTabooed breaks the taboo by educating women about menstruation and alternative feminine hygiene products that can save them money, save the planet, and save them the hassle of worrying where their next pad or tampon is coming from. Starting in New York City, we use reusable menstrual products to help women take a step out of poverty. We aim to take away the shame and the “ick factor” that most women associate with menstruation by empowering and helping them reclaim their dignity. We strive to make sure women stay safe and healthy by educating about overall menstrual health. Finally, we help the environment by helping more women switch from the conventional disposable menstrual products to reusable products.

UnTabooed is fiscally sponsored by the Kota Alliance.
The Kota Alliance aims to promote gender equality and empower women around the world by creating a World Center for Women in New York City for non-profit organizations.
The Kota Alliance aims to empower women around the world. It seeks to create a hub in New York City for not-for-profit organizations whose global mission is to improve women's lives. The Center is to provide subsidized office, conference, and event space in New York City to qualified women-focused organizations allowing them to channel critical resources toward their programs in the field. It will be a hub for like-minded organizations, and an incubator for fruitful collaborations.
It is thoroughly documented that women play a critical role in every aspect of international development. Peacebuilding and peacekeeping, sustainable development and poverty reduction, responsible and accountable governance, etc. cannot be accomplished without healthy, literate, and independent women. While our long term goal is to provide a setting for many diverse global women's organizations and enterprises, in the short term we are doing that on a smaller scale out of the CSI Women's Lab.
New York City is the perfect location for a women's hub of this nature: it will engender an atmosphere of partnership to drive forward our common vision of worldwide gender equality in the very place where so many women's organizations are located, including UN Women. The Kota Center will become a new New York institution serving the world at large and facilitating the work for the Sustainable Development Goals of the UN.
