In the previous month we celebrated women across the country and we urged young girls to reflect on the true heritage and meaning of Women’s Day and Women’s Month, to appreciate the journey South African women have embarked on and the achievements they have accomplished along the way.

In remembrance of what South African women have achieved, Kotex chose Women’s Month to introduce their new campaign, Period or Not, She Can which embraces the power of women and encourages them to believe they can do anything, achieve anything, and let nothing stand in their way –even when it’s that time of the month.

“Women have inspired our innovation, challenged our thinking and been at the center of everything we do.  Our goal is to make sure that a period stigma never holds her back,” says Nthabiseng Motsoeneng, Marketing Manager of Feminine Care category at Kimberly Clark.

Kotex is very proud to announce their partnership with inspirational South African women, who will share their stories and motivational journeys, to bring the Kotex Period or Not, She Can campaign to life.

South African actress and business owner, Mapaseka Koetle-Nyokong; South African actress and TV presenter Nolo Seabi; Brand South Africa Play Your Part Ambassador and Founder of The Red Wings Project, Olwethu Leshabane and film screenwriter for Egg Films and SAFTAs winner, Zandi Tisani, have all joined forces this Women’s Month to showcase how they let nothing stand in the way of their success.

This Women’s Month, Kotex is giving women the opportunity to stand up for what they believe in and, in so doing, encourage all women to be “Unstoppable”.  Motivational t-shirts and “doeks” have been created to celebrate Women’s Month and highlight that Period or Not, She Can with Kotex.

    The idea of helping young girls with getting a need of having pads is a very good idea cause not everyone can afford the amount of money pads cost
