Why this petition matters

Started by maxx garcia

Access to free supplies would help to alleviate some of the economic strain having a period provides. Lack of access to menstrual supplies can have an impact on education. Without access to supplies, students often miss class or do not participate as vigorously for fear of leakage and embarrassment. Periods can start at any point in time and without the necessary supplies we are unable to tend to our bodies. Menstrual products should be placed in all college restrooms so no one feels uncomfortable or embarrassed if they get their menstrual cycle. Many women have stated that they have panic attacks because they don’t have a pad or tampon on hand. I am one of those women, i have experienced the embarrassment and the anxiety. Not having a pad or tampon when you need it most feels like the end of the world. Schools should be providing pads and tampons in every bathroom!
