Forget the duck face...the latest trend for selfies is taking pics with tampons! Yes, you read that correctly.

The hashtag #JustATampon is a social media movement aiming to end the stigma around that time of month. It was started by VPoint and British charity Plan UK to try to make having your period and talking about it less taboo as well as raise funds for women in underprivileged countries without access to feminine hygiene products.

"Around the world, millions of girls face discrimination just for being girls," the campaign explains. "One way this manifests itself is through poor access to quality menstrual health and hygiene. It not only poses health issues, but means girls can miss school when they have their period and face bullying. Only 12% of girls and women have access to sanitary products around the world. And in Africa, one in ten girls miss school when they have their period."

Girls aren't the only taking tampons selfies to support the cause. Check out these awesome men who are getting involved! Are you planning to take a #JustATampon selfie?
