- THE COMMUNITY NEED IS REAL
Menstruation and the need for menstrual products is not a topic that many are willing to talk about. It’s personal. To some it’s a source of shame, and to many young girls in particular, it’s just embarrassing. And some are even missing school because they don’t have access to hygiene products.
For many struggling families, the issue is compounded when the need is there for both parents and kids. Add on the pressure for newcomers and refugee families, or for those who identify as trans or gender non-conforming, and it can be plain overwhelming. United Way in conjunction with the Regina & Saskatoon Labour Council has stepped up to the plate and have organized Tampon Tuesday. For more information please click here.
So, while it’s too often a silent issue, the need is very real.
