One in ten girls around the world do not have access to sanitary products when they menstruate, often preventing them from going to school for up to a week every month. Even here in Canada, 33% of women (under 25) have struggled to afford menstrual products for themselves or their dependents.
“Menstruation is a real problem for many girls in the world because of the high cost of sanitary towels. Because of this, when they are on “their days”, they do not go to school,” explains Be Girl co-founder Diana Sierra.
