It has often been said that man is the cruellest species on the planet. Through the centuries, women have been treated as animals and vice versa. When it comes to animal cruelty, women have a much better track record perhaps because they know what it's like to be treated the way animals often are.
Our feminist entrepreneur idea is to use transparent independently monitored human experiments with paid volunteers who receive health insurance rather than cruel primate and other animal experiments.
Humans can choose to undergo experiments. Animals cannot do so. Also, it is more scientifically accurate to study the effects of a drug on humans than on any animal.
It is a fantastic idea. A cheap, easy to use device that vastly improves women's health and ability to work and get an education.
This project is a great example of a feminist enterprise that addresses several areas of women's empowerment:
Reproductive Empowerment: The use of menstrual cups reduces the risk of infections in a woman's reproductive system which has the potential cause reproductive complications and affects a woman's overall health.
Intellectual Empowerment: By not having to miss school when they are menstruating, young women in East Africa now have fewer obstacles to completing their education.
