Leigh and her SisterFriend Club have been working hard to break the stigma around menstruation and make sure that girls in their school feel comfortable and prepared. They have hosted a period product drive for homeless women and girls in their community, and now they are taking their advocacy to the next level.
Leigh and her club members have noticed that not all girls have access to period products, and it can be embarrassing to ask for help. They decide to meet with school officials to discuss providing free period products in school restrooms, just like toilet paper and soap.
At the meeting, Leigh and her club members share their personal experiences and explain the importance of menstrual equity. They argue that providing free period products in school restrooms can help girls feel more comfortable and confident, and prevent them from missing school due to lack of access to period products.
The school officials listen attentively and ask thoughtful questions. Leigh and her club members come prepared with research and data to support their argument, and they are able to convince the school officials that this is an important issue that needs to be addressed.
The school officials agree to provide free period products in school restrooms, and Leigh and her club members are thrilled. They feel proud of the impact they have made in their school and their community, and they hope that their advocacy will inspire others to take action for menstrual equity.
Leigh and her SisterFriend Club show that anyone can make a difference, no matter their age or background. They believe that every girl deserves to feel confident and prepared during their period, and they are working hard to break down barriers and create a more equitable world.
