Melissa Harris-Perry took a moment on her Sunday MSNBC show to offer women a creative solution to the Texas state capitol temporarily banning tampons.

Earlier this month, state troopers confiscated tampons, maxi pads and other potential projectile items from those entering the capitol to watch the debate and vote on the state's highly controversial anti-abortion bill.

In light of the temporary ban, Harris-Perry's producer made her tampon earrings. Harris-Perry proceeded to put her new jewelry and said, "Just in case that ever happens again, ladies, you can just bring them on your earrings."
