Stats and Information

  • Period Poverty is the lack of access to sanitary products, menstrual hygiene education, toilets, hand washing facilities, and or waste management


  • 33 states still tax  menstrual products (aka “pink tax”)

    • They consider these items a luxury when in reality they are a necessity 

    • Wisconsin is a part of these 33 states, we must campaign against this tax, donate to charities (like TCP) to help girls in need, and use your own voice and platform to address this epidemic. 


  • 1 in every 5 girls (20% of all school aged girls) have to miss school because they cannot afford  period products *


  • A year's supply of period products for one woman costs $70, this can  be drastically lowered by combating the wrongfully deemed  “luxury”  tax on female hygienic products. 


  • Lack of menstrual hygiene and access to products can lead to  devastating health  consequences for young girls such as yeast infections and toxic  shock  syndrome. 


  • If a girl / woman has to stay home from  school due to their inaccessibility to feminine hygiene products, she on average is set 145 days behind her fellow male students.
