This is a constant work in progress. To recommend a resource, email us at pad@period.org

Period Poverty

Period poverty: The limited or inadequate access to menstrual products or menstrual health education as a result of financial constraints or negative socio-cultural stigmas associated with menstruation.

See the research and resources to talk about this important issue in your community.

Take Action

Take action against poverty through the lens of PERIOD's three pillars:

SERVICE: Get period products to those who need them.

EDUCATION: Eradicate period stigma through hosting educational workshops about menstrual health

ADVOCACY: Solve this issue once and for all. Increase access period products in public spaces, and let's get rid of the tax on menstrual products.

Resource Highlight

The Planet-Positive Periods Toolkit is here!

We invite you to equip your community with facts and research about sustainable menstruation

By the end of this presentation, participants will develop a deeper understanding about:

  • The impact of various menstrual products on our planet
  • The impact of our own menstrual footprint
  • Examples of how people can have planet-positive periods

Toolkit includes presentation, resources, and a quiz!
