What is Period Poverty and Menstrual Equity?

Period Poverty is a lack of access to menstrual products, hygiene facilities, waste management and education, affecting 500 Million people. Period poverty causes physical, mental, and emotional difficulties. The stigma surrounding menstruation creates barriers around talking about it. Let's change that.  Source
