Did you know that the Sanitary Pad was developed by a black woman, Mary Beatrice Davidson.
Until sanitary pads were created, women used all kinds of reusable fabrics to absorb menstrual flows. Mary’s invention was initially rejected. The first company that showed interest rejected it because of racial discrimination. The world had no choice, her invention was too important to be ignored. It was later accepted in 1956, 30 years later. #BlackHistoryMonth #blackhistoryfacts
