In honor of World Menstruation Day yesterday, Plan International Australia is running a period campaign where they are asking people to vote for their favorite feminine emoji. A period emoji doesn't currently exist, and the women's rights-focused development charity takes issue with that. On their Facebook page they are asking people to vote for a period emoji design in an effort to raise awareness for menstrual hygiene issues that affect women and girls around the world.

They plan on presenting the winning design to emoji-managing body Unicode Consortium and asking them to add it to keyboards globally. Those interested in voting in the period campaign can comment on the original post with the appropriate emoji.
