Period products should be free for people with periods in Direct Provision, homeless hubs & schools.
Pass legislation that would mean women and girls in direct provision, homeless hubs and schools have access to sanitary products.
Why is this important?
Period poverty is a reality for women and girls. Sanitary products be expensive and the costs mount up every month.
For many low income women its often a choice between paying essential bills and food and buying sanitary products. This is a choice that they should not have to make.
A cross party group of TD's are proposing legislation that would see women and girls in direct provision, homeless hubs and in schools having access to sanitary products.
