The Allied Foundation Period Project is dedicated to support women and girls by providing access to essential products required to manage their menstrual health. Here are the facts*:
1 in 4 women have struggled to purchase period products in the past year due to lack of income.
Only 4% of women are aware of a local resource where free or reduced cost period supplies are available.
1 in 5 low-income women report missing work, school or similar events due to lack of access to period supplies.
State and federal safety-net programs cannot be used to purchase period supplies.
Lack of access to period supplies is linked to using substitute products (toilet tissue), stretching product usage, and missing important events.
