After 2 years of campaigning against the government’s inaction, after a protest outside Downing street where over 2,000 young people stood together wearing red to sing and shout about our periods, after two years of giving talks, meeting MPs in Westminster, after giving endless interviews and writing countless articles, and, finally, after launching legal challenge to urge the government to comply with its commitment to the Equality Act, the Chancellor announced that from early 2020, Free Period's’ mission will become a reality.

Every child in England will be able to access menstrual products when they need them and periods will never hold them back again. 

Of course, we were thrilled - but we’re not done yet!
