Free tampons and pads for menstruating students on campus!!

Women have no control over their period given that it's a biological function. "The average woman endures some 456 total periods over 38 years, or roughly 2,280 days with her period — 6.25 years of her life." Women on average in their lifetime spend $18,171. 

The reality is tampons and pads are ridiculously expensive and allowing students to have access to these hygienic products on a regular basis will improve their ability to go about their and focus on their school work- instead of stressing about having to buy these products AND potentially not being able to afford them.

If a university is able to give out free condoms for a choice that is 100% controllable, then there is nothing stopping them from funding and giving out tampons and pads to students.
