U.S. Period Poverty IS REal

"... period poverty impacts a number of different groups across the U.S. From young girls who have to miss school because of a lack of access to period products, to women in prison who are often forced to beg guards for basic hygiene products, menstrual inequity is a real issue."

"...nearly 25 million women live below the poverty line in the U.S., yet menstrual products are not covered by food stamps. "

 Forbes : Period Poverty is a Thing, Even in the U.S.
