Guests were invited to The Harold and Dorothy Steward Center for Jazz in the Grand Center of St. Louis to enjoy performances from St. Louis’s Best: Vocalists Denise Thimes and Kim Massie, jazz duo The Bosman Twins, world renowned comedienne Monique Marvez, with a special guest appearance by Gene Dobbs Bradford to support a great cause. To support Dignity Period, a St. Louis-based not-for-profit whose mission is to keep adolescent Ethiopian girls in school by ensuring that they have access to quality menstrual hygiene products and education. Menstruation is a taboo subject in Ethiopia, which can lead to fear and shame, and most girls must make do with inadequate – and sometimes unsanitary – substitutes for menstrual hygiene products. Girls often stay home from school to avoid embarrassing accidents, causing them to fall behind and even drop out. Dignity Period believes that change can happen through a comprehensive solution to the challenges facing girls in Ethiopia. We focus on three key areas of work: Pad distribution, research, and behavior change education.
