The Hill We Climb + Stand With Black Women + Farmgirl Flowers
Amanda Gorman
For there is always light, if only we're brave enough to see it. If only we're brave enough to be it."
— Amanda Gorman
We're still feeling uplifted after listening to @TheAmandaGorman , the youngest inaugural poet in U.S. history, read her poem at the inauguration of President Joe Biden. And we're planning to carry this energy with us throughout the rest of 2021. Read “The Hill We Climb” here.
Black women's influence radiates in every corner of American culture and history — shattering records and leading movements that affirm the need for racial and gender justice, sex positivity, bodily autonomy, and health equity.

Planned Parenthood has been shaped by Black women throughout its 104-year history. Faye Wattleton, who served from 1978 to 1992, was the first Black president and CEO of Planned Parenthood. In 1989, she founded Planned Parenthood Action Fund, Planned Parenthood's advocacy arm.

Planned Parenthood is proud to stand with Black women, support the Reproductive Justice organizations leading this work, and amplify the stories of the Black women who shaped our organization as well as those who are paving the way for the next generation.

We celebrated Black History Month by championing the Black women leading the charge for Reproductive Justice — fighting to expand access and protect our rights: SisterSong, SisterReach, Movement for Black Lives, Women with a Vision, Black Women for Wellness, SPARK Reproductive Justice Now!, and Access Reproductive Care-Southeast. Their work strengthens our lives and our efforts to make sexual and reproductive health care accessible to all. Help us celebrate these partner organizations by making a gift to them today.

My must-listen for today: the latest episode of @thebgguide podcast hosted by @AshantiGholar, featuring Planned Parenthood's very own Dr. Krishna Upadhya! They break down how to make health care accessible, how to equitably distribute the COVID-19 vaccine, and how to build trust for the vaccine among the public.
"How do I know when my period has ended?"
Every person's menstrual cycle is different — how many days your period lasts and how heavy your flow is throughout your period is unique to you. Some people spot or have light bleeding early in their period, some periods are mostly spotting, and some end with spotting after heavy bleeding. Once the bleeding has stopped completely, meaning you're not spotting, you can consider your period over.

Keep track of your periods and symptoms on a calendar or in an app is a great way to learn what's normal for your body. Try our app, Spot On, to stay on top of your period.
