We recognize this name is controversial and have certainly had mixed responses, but we’re putting in an effort to change that. With Lady Problems, our goal is to take a term that is currently seen as negative, ignored, put down, belittled or seen as a “women’s issue” and flip it to something positive – these are issues that affect all of us.
