What is Period Poverty?

“For a lot of people like students, low-income and homeless women and girls, transgender and nonbinary individuals, and those who are currently in prison, they all struggle with period poverty, whether it be for economic reasons that they’re not able to afford them, for access reasons where they’re not given the proper amount of products, or because they’re not given the most hygienic products in their situations.” — Gabriela Lopez-Castillo (College Senior, PERIOD Youth Advisory Council)
