Respect the Dot: End Period Poverty, National Menstrual Hygiene Day – May 28
Posted by Philadelphia Commission for Women on May 25, 2021
It’s not just happening in other countries, it is happening in our OWN backyards.
Period or Not Respect the Dot End Period Poverty Campaign addresses the citywide deficits in education and awareness in regards to period stigma.
Due to the stigmatized perceptions our communities has towards feminine hygiene products and the menstruation cycle in general it impacts the health and wellness of girls of all ages.
There are currently NO ongoing programs except ours that assist low income students with feminine hygiene products.
Join the Philadelphia Commission for Women on Friday, May 28, 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM, for Respect the Dot: National Menstrual Hygiene Day!
