The grassroots activists tackling period poverty are a great example of what can be done if we refuse to be prisoners of the status quo... through positive campaigning we have shown politicians that it's expedient to back our cause!

Just thrilled!! The government has today pledged free menstrual products will be extended to primary schools, too! Now, no child in education in England will ever need to worry about their next period again.
