Frequently Asked Questions
Why are you called August?
August stands for dignity and respect, which is what the period space is missing. We believe that caring for your well-being is a noble pursuit that we can improve. And by returning dignity to a natural and powerful process and by operating from a place of inclusion, shamelessness, transparency, and care, we, at August, hope to help menstruators unlock their full potential throughout the month, every month.
