Essity knows that not everyone who menstruates is a woman, such as those born with a different biological sex to their gender identity, and that not all women menstruate, considering factors such as contraception, health conditions and menopause. By adding ‘+’ to women, Essity is recognizing and including the full range of underrepresented groups who use its products, such as trans and non-binary people.
