Periods seem to be a taboo subject and women, especially teenage girls are made to feel embarrassed about them like they are wrong. Every year girls are missing out on their education due to lack of sanitary products as the monthly cost isn't cheap, more so for those struggling with low incomes. 

During sex education weeks condoms are handed out like candy yet sanitary products are rationed to a minimum and the subject of periods skipped over! I think girls should be educated and encouraged to honour their monthly flow, understand what is going on and given free menstrual cups with a tutorial on how to use them. Many menstrual cup products are quite cheap, they last at least 10 years due to the reliability of them and it will also reduce the amount of plastic waste from sanitary products going to landfill every year! 

Providing this vital resource and product will mean less girls missing out on school and their education for something their bodies do as part of it's natural function as well as improving the environment it's a win all round! 

Please help me get this subject noticed and discussed among everyone, there is nothing to be ashamed of when it comes to our bodies and how they function. Women and girls can't live without sanitary protection so let's help get them off to a great start!
