Period Poverty - how you can help.

Menstrual Educators Amanda and Sahara from Weaving The Red Thread are passionate change-makers who are striving to reduce period poverty by getting more period care products and education into the hands of more Australians.

Period Poverty is a very real problem that impacts millions of people around the world - and undeniably here in Australia too. Even today in 2021 Australia, 22% of people surveyed did not have funds to access clean period care products, having no choice but to either improvise their own product or stay home missing out on school or work. 49% of menstruators had to wear a tampon or pad beyond the safety guideline of 4 hours, and needed to ration products out to last the duration of a period. Clearly, period poverty is not just a Third World issue.
