NEW YORK, March 31, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, as part of a new partnership with the Poise brand, television personality, businesswoman and mother of six, Kris Jenner, is addressing a reality for millions of women – Light Bladder Leakage (LBL). Starring as Rosie the Riveter, Kris is now part of the Poise brand's "Great Women in History" series launched last year to highlight that many great women have LBL – in fact, one in three women have LBL but nobody talks about it.

"Like millions of women, I have my own experiences with LBL, but I've never let it keep me from living life to the fullest," said Kris. "Inspired by the impact that last year's 'Great Women in History' series had on women with LBL, I've teamed up with the Poise brand to help women understand that LBL is common and manageable so it shouldn't stop them from doing great things and being the incredible and accomplished women they are."
In honor of Women's History Month (March), Kris portrays Rosie the Riveter, an American cultural icon who represents millions of women who also may have dealt with life's little leaks but didn't let that hold them back from doing great things. Together, the Poise brand and Kris are inviting women to leave their own mark on history by visiting 1in3likeme.com to write a caption for Kris's photograph to tell the LBL story from Rosie the Riveter's perspective. Each woman who submits a caption will automatically be entered for a chance to win a trip to a destination featured in the "Great Women in History" series and have her LBL tagline featured with the photo on www.mydaily.com/1in3 . The Poise brand will donate* one dollar for every woman who participates in the campaign to Women's Health Foundation (WHF), an organization committed to championing women's pelvic health issues.
"By introducing Kris as Rosie the Riveter, we are adding fuel to the national conversation we ignited last year," said Amy Schubin, brand manager for Poise. "We are committed to arming women with LBL with the knowledge that they are not alone and that the Poise brand offers protection to help them be themselves."
LBL affects women of all ages and life stages. These little leaks can happen by simply laughing, coughing, sneezing, lifting or exercising. Fortunately, women can easily and discreetly manage LBL with products specifically designed for LBL, like Poise brand liners and pads. Unlike period only products, Poise brand products provide outstanding protection for LBL to help women stay comfortably dry.
