Why is this so important?

Period poverty refers to the lack of access to menstrual hygiene products due to financial constraints. It can also be associated with a lack of access to education or facilities that allow for hygienic management of periods.

The lack of access to menstrual hygiene products is often a misunderstood or an utterly unknown issue in the United States. Menstrual hygiene products are necessities but are not available in many schools, shelters, and communities to menstruators and students in need.

In 35 States, menstrual hygiene products are taxed. We have found that often government officials have not considered the fact that menstrual hygiene products are a basic necessity still being taxed. In most public schools, these products are not readily available in the same way soap and toilet tissue are. They come with a cost that supersedes a monetary transaction and often carries a social stigma as part of the price tag.
