Mpower was born in 2008 out of founder Glenda Tutt's personal experience as a financially constrained single mum who could not afford pads. She started using an imported menstrual cup given to her by a friend. It worked, and changed her life on all levels - from financial to sustainability to menstrual hygiene management. Glenda is also a motivational speaker and has given a TedX Talk on the Mcup (click here to view it).
