Period products should be free for women & girls in Direct Provision, homeless hubs & schools.

Period products should be free for women & girls 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.

Reasons for signing

  • Equity of access
  • Because its necessary for women
  • I’m ashamed to say that if men had periods we wouldn’t need to have this petition 😞
