The UK Mother & Daughter Duo Taking on Period Poverty through Technology
&SISTERS is the brainchild of UK daughter and mother duo Lucy and Claire Lettice. They are developing a menstrual health ecosystem for the future, a powerful combination of smart technology and best in class products. Offering an easy way for users to monitor their cycle, understand and respond to how their body changes, as well as access to ethical, sustainable products. “&SISTERS delivers the right self-care products at the right time” according to the duo’s marketing material.
Having experienced, first-hand, the shame and hardship that comes with lack of access to safe period products, they decided to take action. Drawing on Claire’s entrepreneurial background and Lucy’s expertise as a buyer, they dreamt up a model for a new kind of conscious period product – one that was kind to women’s bodies, kind to the planet and could genuinely contribute to the fight against period poverty. They are on a mission to ensure that womankind is never held back by periods.

We think this is a very noble and innovative venture and look forward to following their progress and successes in the near future.
