Periods ATX started this petition to The University of Texas Administration

Offering free menstrual products at UT would have a positive impact on at least 50% of the student body. Nearly 86% of people start their periods outside the comfort of their own home without the proper hygiene products needed. Having these menstrual products in school, free of charge, will allow students to live a less stress-free life and focus on their schooling instead of worrying about the consequences of not being prepared. A New York City Public School study suggests that offering free menstrual products in school can increase class attendance by 2.4%.

Some students have a difficult time purchasing menstrual products due to their limited financial resources, which forces them to make a choice between food or menstrual products. No one, especially a student, should ever be forced to have to make this decision. Instead, students should have easy and free access to the hygiene products they need and eliminate the feeling of embarrassment by not being able to afford them.

We are asking everyone - please take a moment to sign this petition and help make a positive impact on the well-being of our students.
