I believe this government needs to address period poverty as a matter of urgency. Plan UK have recently reported that 40% of girls in the UK have used toilet roll because they cannot afford menstrual products.
This is staggering, and it is abhorrent that Mrs May’s government is refusing to take action. Menstrual care is a fundamental human right. No child should be held back because of their period, and we need to make sure they can access menstrual products when they need them.
We have to make sure that every child in the UK can reclaim their dignity, education and childhood. Long-term provision by way of a governmental statutory pledge is the only way to do this. Please help.
