Support Free Menstrual Products in Schools

Whereas menstruation is a normal, biological function experienced by half the population; and

Whereas, too many students in Ontario lack of access to menstrual products, leading to embarrassment, shame and missed days at school; and

Whereas surveys have shown that 34% of menstruators have had difficulty affording menstrual products, and social attitudes and gender discrimination too often force young people to hide their menstrual products or lie about having their period; 

 

Therefore, we the undersigned, call on the Legislative Assembly of Ontario to support the provision of free menstrual products in Ontario's schools.
