Period poverty affects women and girls all over the world. Access to sanitary products, safe, hygienic spaces in which to use them, and the right to manage menstruation without shame or stigma, is essential for anyone who menstruates.
But for many, this is not a reality. This is not just a potential health risk – it can also mean women and girls’ education, well-being, and sometimes entire lives are affected.
- 1 in 10 girls can’t afford to buy menstrual products in the UK
- Over 137,700 girls have missed school because of Period Poverty
- 48% of girls are embarrassed by their periods and afraid to ask for help
