Always rally allies on the Hill, ahead of Menstrual Hygiene Day, in support of Congresswoman Grace Meng’s Menstrual Fairness for All Act – which would help end period poverty in the United States systemically

WASHINGTON, May 19, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Always, the global leader in menstrual care, and International Paper, the world’s leading supplier of renewable fiber products, are partnering to deliver systemic solutions to help #EndPeriodPoverty.

Lack of access to periodic protection is often known as menstrual poverty – and it affects people all over the world, even in the most economically developed countries. In the United States, nearly one in five girls missed school because they did not have access to menstrual products1.

Since Always’s #EndPeriodPoverty program launched in 2018, Always has donated more than 160 million menstrual products to people in need around the world, including more than 50 million in the United States, in partnership with organizations such as Feeding America®, the nation’s largest national market. hunger relief organization. While donations can help people stay in school and improve their self-confidence, donations alone cannot solve menstrual poverty because poverty itself is a systemic problem. The stigma surrounding menstruation can also make matters worse, preventing those affected from voicing their needs and preventing potential solutions from being widely discussed and implemented. As several US states have stepped up to help #EndPeriodPoverty, 56% of society thinks they should be doing more to get free products to those in need2. If passed, Congresswoman Grace Meng’s Menstrual Fairness for All Act would help do just that across the United States.

“Millions of people across our country suffer from a lack of access to vintage goods and are forced to forgo education or employment opportunities because of it,” said MP Grace Meng ( D-NY). “As we celebrate Menstrual Hygiene Day on May 28and, I urge everyone, including lawmakers, to support my Menstrual Fairness for All Act. This is the first whole-of-government approach to addressing this problem and would help end the problem of menstrual poverty. »

To further help raise awareness of the prevalence of period poverty across the country and motivate society at large to support the bill, Always is also partnering with actress and activist Jameela Jamil, who spoke at the event in Washington DC on the issue – watch here.

“I was shocked to learn that approximately 3.5 million girls have missed school here in the United States due to a lack of access to menstrual hygiene products.3. It’s way too much. When people don’t have access to menstrual products, not only do they feel unprotected, but it also puts their confidence, dignity and education at risk,” said Jameela Jamil. “I’m very proud to partner with Always and support their mission to help #EndPeriodPoverty. I encourage everyone to join us in supporting the Menstrual Fairness for All Act to help keep young people in school.” To help you, you can contact your elected officials here and ask them to show their support for the law.

“Always has been championing youth confidence for more than 35 years, through puberty and self-confidence education, providing access to menstrual products and driving societal change,” said Melissa Suk, Vice President feminine care in North America at Procter & Gamble. “When I entered puberty, I remember my own confidence being shaken as I wasn’t sure what was going on in my body – I wondered what products to use and felt too embarrassed to even speak.Today, as the mother of a 6-year-old girl, I am motivated to do more so that she can enter puberty feeling supported and nurtured.To make this change for the next generation, collaboration and alliances with individuals and organizations who share the same mission will play a vital role in helping to resolve the period We are delighted to support MP Grace Meng’s bill and continue our partnership with International Paper and Feeding America as part of our continued commitment to bringing about change so that lack of menstrual protection never again impedes nurturing and confidence.”

To help address the ongoing need for menstrual products, Always and International Paper – alongside congressional staff and Feeding America – hosted an event in Washington DC on May 12 to discuss period poverty, while also packing 500 kits with menstrual products to donate to the local community. . Always, with the support of Jameela Jamil, will also donate an additional one million napkins to the Feeding America food bank network. In addition, International Paper will host more than 45 packaging events throughout the year at its facilities around the world.

REVIEW: Dion’s music electrifies ‘The Wanderer’ at Paper Mill Playhouse Fri, 15 Apr 2022 15:10:17 +0000

MILLBURN, NJ — The Vagabond, a new musical set to music by Dion, has arrived at the Paper Mill Playhouse, and the wait was worth it. The musical jukebox tells the story of Dion DiMucci’s life, from his upbringing on Belmont Avenue in the Bronx to his eventual musical career, which produced such hits as ‘The Wanderer’, ‘Runaround Sue’, ‘King of the New York Streets” and “Abraham, Martin and John.” Throughout the ups and downs of his formative years, Dion remained focused on a personal and professional journey that matched who he was and what he was trying to accomplish with his music. this unwavering approach meant he had run-ins with his parents, record executives, and drug addiction that he struggled to shake off.

The expansive stage at the Paper Mill Playhouse features a stylized version of Belmont Avenue in the Bronx, a Little Italy alternative to Manhattan. Dion grew up amidst the stoops, sidewalks and, most importantly, lampposts of this part of New York. He combined this physical gear in his lyrics and advanced the doo-wop style, which was often sung under the glow of a street lamp. It’s those recognizable songs from the 1950s and 1960s that have catchy hooks, easy-to-digest lyrics, and winning harmony.

After Dion started his band (aptly named the Belmonts), his music began to take off and he found himself propelled from humble beginnings in the Bronx to the national stage. One of the highlights of his career – which would become a chilling cautionary tale – involved a winter tour with the likes of Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper. Dion, the story goes, ultimately didn’t take the doomed flight that would kill these three musicians, but the tragedy of that situation stayed with him, seemingly, forever.

Recovering from this incident, Dion wanted to continue on his own path and he was tired of the doo-wop style (just like the United States at the time). Despite criticism from his team, he molded himself into a folk artist and changed his musical style and physical appearance. The move was a big risk, but it paid off with a big hit called “Abraham, Martin and John,” which came to life quite emotionally in The Vagabond.

The musical, which lasts just under three hours, is a great spectacle with many characters moving in and out of Dion’s life. There are love interests, relatives, neighbors, fellow musicians and friends. Most of them are solid, positive influences in his life, but some – notably a character named Johnny – are toxic to the young singer.

The cast is near perfect and brings Dion’s songbook to life with verve and liveliness. Mike Wartella gives a star turn as Dion. His vocal chops are up to the challenge, especially with those high-pitched harmonies on early doo-wop songs like “A Teenager in Love.” He also has the dramatic ability to make audiences feel empathy for Dion’s meteoric rise and impending drug-induced death spiral. It’s an effective and engaging performance.

Joli Tribuzio, who actually grew up on Belmont Avenue, and Johnny Tammaro are pretty good at Frances and Pat DiMucci, respectively. They are loving and sometimes stern parents to Dion, and they shower him with adulation and hard-earned wisdom about his life choices. Joey McIntyre (yes, that Joey McIntyre) is enjoyable as Johnny, the devil on Dion’s shoulder, telling him about life’s shortcuts and ways to squander the opportunities presented to him. Kingsley Leggs (Willie Green) is also a wonderful addition to the cast, as is Jasmine Rogers as Melody Green. Christy Altomare (playing Susan, who ends up marrying Dion) has one of the best voices in the cast.

The Vagabond is a fun and poetic journey into the life of a Bronx resident who made him nationally known. The songbook that comes to life in the show is catchy and sing-along-worthy. The scenes captured by director Kenneth Ferrone and writer Charles Messina are beautifully done, especially the opening of “King of the New York Streets.” Some may draw parallels to this other jukebox musical about a group of Italian-American singers, but Dion’s story is unique enough to keep your head held high. The connection to that doomed robbery, the drug overrun, the doo-wop culture of the Bronx in the 1960s – it all makes for dramatic and important storytelling. The songs are pure entertainment and a pleasure to tap your feet. With a little adjustment here and there, The Vagabond is on track for a longer river crossing in New York.

The designers Victor (Vivi) Bellaish, Shai Shalom, Kobi Halperin; and the stories of the BrookLynn paper dolls and Glenna Gaffney’s new Couture Paper Dolls collectible.

Agenda’s January 2022 issue 17, titled Couture Paper Dolls, features designer / illustrator Renaldo Barnette (by Black Design Collective), the creator of BrookLynn Paper Doll and comics.

As a child, Renaldo read every fashion publication he could get his hands on, but as far back as he could remember his first love was comics and comics. As he rummaged through Millie the model, Patsy & Hedy, Katy keene, Betty and Véronique; Brenda Starr, Marie perkins, Friday Foster, and Winnie Winkle, he was amazed by the illustrations. He credits these comics for showing him how to draw fashion. And in the case of Millie the model and Winnie Winkle, he discovers that fashion is a real business.

“I always wanted to see a comic about a black mannequin. I remember seeing Millie the modelJill’s friend in 1966. She was one of the first black characters in the Marvel universe. And she was a black model from England. When I saw model Gayle O’Neil [in the mid-late 80s], I thought she looked like a doll, thinking she could be like a comic book. I had played with this idea for decades, and ten years ago I gave it the name “BrookLynn”.

“I am a recent collector of paper dolls. When I first moved to New York City, I had one book of paper dolls and the other a set of paper dolls. I had two published via Western. One was a set of paper dolls for the bride, like a box, and the other was called Rock stars. These are two freelance jobs that my friend, the late great Bob Rausch, offered me when I was in between jobs in the late 1980s.

Barnette talks about her favorite concept for her debut Brooklynn Paper doll book:

“It’s the makeover concept of how this regular schoolgirl can be given a makeover, like the way Audrey Hepburn got a makeover in Funny head Where Sabrina. Or the way Bette Davis was turned into Now Traveling. I don’t care about height or size, if you find clothes, a great hairstyle and a nice makeup, it can turn an ordinary person into the most beautiful person they can be. And I always liked it. It’s not just about looking pretty, it’s about looking prettier. – Agenda, Renaldo Barnette – Designer, Illustrator and Creator of BrookLynn Paper Dolls and Comics @itsallaboutbrookLynn

Artist Glenna Gaffney has created a new style of paper doll that she calls “Couture Paper Dolls”. Her collection ranges from “Fly Mom”, her Mewsick line with Prince / Michael Jackson Inspired to her latest collection boosted by the 2021 MET Gala. How are these dolls different? These are not the traditional paper dolls. Housed in a shadow box, these dolls are dressed in Swarovsky crystals, sequins, feathers with intense jewelry and meticulous handwork down to the hair, which is deceptively made from paper bags. Gaffney makes her dolls to be unique, and they definitely look like couture. Each doll comes with a certificate of authenticity and no doll is the same. Here she talks about one of her Couture paper dolls

“Emerald Faye – Inspired by the girl who appreciates a long dress, dresses smartly and goes to a social event. She walks into her event with “blinging” Swarovski crystals, long flowing hair, making a pearl entry. The clothes are designed by Isaac Pineda. My desire is to work with different designers. I love collaborations, and Isaac Pineda is my first CPD collaboration. Isaac created the pattern and selected the fabric. I integrated his vision into mine. . . and Emerald Faye was born out of this process. Agenda, Couture Paper Dolls by Glenna Gaffney – A trendy collection for the “grown-up” little girl! (

In the Fashion Talk section, Kaylene Peoples gives a historical retrospective of the history of the paper doll …

“One of the earliest examples of a paper doll was a Jumping Jack or a Puppet, where he originated in France in the 1700s. These dolls wore the haute couture of the time with one outfit. So no change of clothes. Like puppets or puppets, they were originally created to make fun of the wealthy. In the late 1700s, fashion companies in Europe, especially in Paris, saw a huge opportunity to advertise their fashion through paper dolls, which began to change the outfits of these dolls. . During this period, there were major advances in printing technology, making mass production of these “new” paper dolls accessible to more people at an affordable cost.

Peoples continues …

I’m a grown woman, but I guess I’ll always have this little girl inside me who loves to play with dolls. As a Barbie collector I have a new (micro) collection of paper dolls and I want to explore more vintage paper dolls and cutouts. I discovered that today there are countless books with paper dolls that are very recent publications with fashion throughout history: First Ladies with Michelle Obama, Jackie Kennedy, Nancy Reagan; famous designers from Christian Dior to Valentino; Meghan Markle’s royal brides to Kate the Duchess of Sussex; dancers, iconic celebrities, even high rollers singers. There weren’t as many superhero paper dolls as I expected, but they do exist, mostly as collectibles … and swapping out die-cut comics for paper dolls is a really big thing. that I learned. Comic Cons and various conventions around the world are where one can find these rare remains. – Agenda, The evolving paper doll, proof that everything is coming back in fashion

Kendall Jenner and Devin Booker spark marriage, pregnancy rumors Tue, 04 Jan 2022 01:49:26 +0000

Kendall Jenner’s vacation photos sent fans into a frenzy.

Last weekend, the model and her boyfriend, Devin Booker, quietly celebrated the New Year around the country. However, a few photos posted on Jenner’s Instagram sent the internet in a dazed state, particularly a mirror selfie where there’s a strip of gold on Booker’s ring finger.

“Anyone else noticed the ring on his hand?” As one commented, while others observed the accessory writing things like, “Mmmm the ring ……”

Granted, others have pointed out that since this is a mirror selfie, the reflection means the ring is “on her right hand, not her left,” while several other fans have corroborated this, adding: “If someone wears a ring on their wedding finger on their right hand, and takes a selfie in a mirror, it appears to be on the left hand, but it’s not. I’ve often thought that j was engaged. Not only that, but as Cosmos pointed out, Jenner and Booker have once trolled everyone with a fake pledge, so who really knows?

Meanwhile, many commentators have also speculated that Jenner could be pregnant thanks to a photo where she poses with a bottle of her brand of tequila 818. And although the slight bulge is probably just a byproduct from her thick, oversized sweater tons of people started to say she was pregnant, some even accusing her of “releasing alcohol to get us out of the pregnancy” while others congratulated her.

Neither Jenner nor Booker responded to the speculation. In the meantime, see the photos for yourself below.

Amanda Gorman posts ‘New Day’s Lyric’ poem on Instagram Thu, 30 Dec 2021 17:49:08 +0000

To welcome the New Year, its possibilities and reflect on the collective challenge of 2021, acclaimed poet Amanda Gorman has shared a new poem, “New Day’s Lyric,” which ties it all together.

Gorman posted the poem reading on Instagram this week, alongside its wording. Wearing a striking white Cong Tri gown, she delivered the necessary message we all need – that after a year of mourning, after being tampered with, torn or beaten, “We must always lead the way.”

She focused on 2022 being the glimmer of light in the dark tunnel that was 2021. “This hope is our door, our portal,” she said. “Even if we never return to normal, one day we will be able to venture beyond, to leave the known and take the first steps.

But hope for the future was not his only goal. “Where we tend to argue, we’ll try to come to an agreement,” Gorman said, preaching a message of unity, which would be perfect since we’re all going through this pandemic together. “Those times when we meet, and our hearts, once all together beaten, now all beaten together,” she continued.

Gorman’s poem is part of a project she is working on with the International Rescue Committee to help those affected by the pandemic. In addition to its organization, Meta is also expected to donate $ 50,000 to the organization.

Talk to Vanity Fair ahead of the poem’s release, Gorman detailed what it was like to create it. “I can’t wait to work with Instagram because part of what inspired me to write this New Year’s poem was thinking about the stories and stories I have seen shared over the past two years, which he it’s about coming to terms with grief, loss, social change, climate change, ”she said. “And so many of these stories, I think, we interact or meet on social media.”

Gorman – who performed her poem “The Hill We Climb” during the inauguration of President Joe Biden and became the first National Poet Laureate in 2017 – has published a collection of poems, Call us what we transport, earlier this month.

Lourdes Leon compared to Madonna for sexy new pics in print magazine – SheKnows Fri, 10 Dec 2021 17:00:09 +0000

Lourdes Léon has already proven that she is forging her own path. The dancer, choreographer and model 25 years has won sizeable campaigns, including Swarovski, collaborations with Stella McCartney, Savage X Fenty Rihanna and more. At each stage, Lourdes has completely demarcated its famous mom, and in his new pictures and profile sexy Paper Magazine, the young talent reminds us that she is very different from Madonna, no matter what critics might say about her.

In the series of photos, which you can see HERE and Paper Magazine, Lourdes sported a series of ups of different bikini in slinky dresses and even contact lenses and colored wigs. But with each photo, Lourdes showed (as if more proof was needed) that she knows how to handle the camera. While each look was different from the last, the only consistency in each snapshot was the model’s confidence and poise. Honestly, she owned this photoshoot. But it was his interview that revealed much more.

“I have a base layer of hate because so many people love to hate my mom, so it’s obviously like I’m the spawn, I’m the eldest daughter, I’m going to see the end of this hate”, Lourdes said in his interview with Paper. “So all I do that’s negative is ‘Like mother, like daughter.’ You are all so unoriginal. While Lourdes clearly understands the pressure she faces as the daughter of one of pop culture’s most distinguished icons, her approach to her craft, and especially her style and sexuality, is unique to her.

“For me, my values ​​are that you can be as sexual as you want,” she explained to the store. “I’ll never judge a person for that. I think that’s something people still don’t understand with sexual autonomy. I don’t judge other women that way, so I don’t apply these rules to myself, ”she continued.

And while Lourdes is different in many ways from her mother, she certainly learned a lot from observing how Madonna and her contemporaries were treated in the limelight. “As soon as you use what has been used against you, especially growing up in the media as a woman, people put all this pressure on you. Be hot, but not too hot. Be the virgin and the whore at the same time. People place a lot of importance on women in their appearance and sexuality. So the second you take that sexuality back as something that belongs to you, people go crazy.

If it wasn’t clear before, Lourdes Leon is now making it clear that she has a vision beyond her years of fame and social conventions – and that she won’t play by anyone’s rules other than her own. . Watching his career blossom has been a treat for the fans, and Lourdes is only just beginning.

RNBW Cannabis Shakes Culture Of Music Festival Substance Tue, 09 Nov 2021 18:22:32 +0000

After a extremely rough 2020, we can all collectively agree that what the world is missing is some really good weed right now.

As everything begins to open up as more people receive the vaccine, it’s no surprise that COVID has brought in a new cannabis user – one who is not going to go away. The use of American vices, like Pete Davidson-inspired substances and sex toys, all increased during the lockdown, causing many to follow habits like never before. With a generation living on the day-to-day as if it were the last after a murderous era in global history, it’s no wonder that new companies are springing up with the goal of changing a stigmatized conversation and capitalizing on the times. strong.

To celebrate the return of live music, premium cannabis brand RNBW has launched a full line of products in collaboration with Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas. Supported by Insomniac, the parent company of EDC’s music festival, the launch of RNBW ushers in a new era of responsible and thoughtful consumption.

Nestled between stages, RNBW’s interactive art installation took users inside premium cannabis, from photo ops to educational programming about the world of weed. The move de-stigmatizes and demystifies drug use at festivals, ultimately leading to a large-scale collection plan that the brand hopes to implement in the future.

Rather than introducing substances or purchasing potentially laced strains at the event, RNBW is set to launch a revolutionary purchase and release system in the future, offering customers the ability to pre-order. flowers, vapes and edibles to be picked up later. inside the festival grounds. This milestone marks the first for a company that is rethinking its uncompromising stance on marijuana use for an evolving generation, and one that we will certainly see booming in the future.

Let’s face it: Music festivals and drug use have always had a long-standing love affair. From abundant psychedelics from Woodstock ’69 to recreational MDNA at all electronic dance music events, nearly one in four people reported using drugs at music festivals, according to a 2018 study. The Substance of Choice most frequently used? Cannabis, with over 60% favorability among respondents.

At this time, RNBW is available in all legal states, including EDC’s Nevada. In October, the brand hosted select pop-ups at dispensaries, with the full line now available online on the brand’s website with a group of select retailers joining the race.

Obviously, festival-goers’ substance use isn’t going to stop anytime soon, as it’s such a deeply embedded element in rave music and culture. And sure, you can be sober while enjoying some great beats, but if you choose to indulge yourself, RNBW makes sure you do it safely.
