How did this start?

Several universities have instituted programs providing no-cost menstrual hygiene products (MHPs) to students. In July 2016, New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio signed a bill requiring free MHPs in public schools. This program, spearheaded by Students for Sexual Respect at NYU and the Student Senators Council, builds off of this progress.


Why does this matter?

MHPs are integral to the mental, emotional, and physical health of many students, and are necessary to ensure equal educational access to people of all genders and socioeconomic statuses. Menstruation should not be stigmatized, and providing MHPs at no cost to students is a step towards normalizing campus-wide conversations about menstrual health.


Why "menstrual hygiene products", not "feminine hygiene products"?

Not all women menstruate and not all people who menstruate are women. These products are for a biological function, not a gender.
