TABOO Period Products
Bloody Important Conversation
1 in 5 Australia menstruators do not have proper access to period care. Although many workplaces are seen as socially proactive, very few are taking the steps to provide their employees period care products. Unlike toilet paper or handwash, businesses don’t feel responsible or see providing period products as a necessity. With many Australians spending a substantial portion of their time at work, businesses adopting period products into their workplace would make a significant impact towards beating period poverty.
The conversation around menstruation is still stigmatised and because of this workplaces don’t see period products as their responsibility, where it should be as available as toilet paper.
Provide a platform that enables employees to anonymously ask their employer to supply period products in the workspace. Empower people to start an important conversation and help to facilitate that conversation.
