WHAT IS NATIONAL PERIOD DAY?

On October 19, 2019, we will rally in all 50 states in honor of the world’s first #NationalPeriodDay -- elevating the issue of period poverty and demanding real change to making period products more accessible for all and ending the #TamponTax. This is an inclusive rally! Whether you menstruate or not, EVERYONE is welcome. We especially need organizers from marginalized communities, so please share your email here (to the right) if you’re interested in getting more involved.

It’s 2019, and yet, 35 US States still have a sales tax on period products considering them non-essential items. 1 in 4 women struggle to afford period products due to a lack of income. In the first city-wide study on period poverty, it was found that  46% of low-income women had to choose between a meal and period products. Because of the period stigma that makes menstruation a taboo topic, we don’t often think about what it’s like for a homeless or low-income menstruator to get their period, and don’t have open conversations about period health or solutions to period poverty.
