menstruation is not a secret

1 in 5 teens can not afford period products*

Period Poverty is an umbrella term used to describe the injustices women experience during or because of menstruation. This includes inaccessibility of period products, inadequate sanitary facilities, and a lack of education about menstruation. As a result, women struggle with financial burdens, missing school or work, and increased health risks. These issues are particularly prevalent in intersectional women, including, but not limited to, low-income, LGBTQ+, disabled, and refugees.

 

Moiselle aims to fight Period Poverty by supplying girls from lower income backgrounds with the period resources they need, be it information or supplies.  Our first initiative includes producing travel-sized period pouches to be distributed in New York schools.
