“We make up over half of the population and there's not enough studies about us and our bodies and how we function and we are the life bringers.” - Nikki Spo 

“Society does not like to honor aging women and so of course we're not going to talk about sex because our society is so twisted.” - Kate Morton 

“When we're disconnected from our bodies, we don't appreciate them and we don't love them and we don't take care of them the way that we should.” - Kate Morton 

“There's four phases of your menstrual cycle. You feel different in each phase. Your body needs different care in each phase.” - Kate Morton 

“I think people need to understand that my menstrual cycle doesn't make me weak. It's actually a super power that I can use to my advantage.” - Kate Morton
