How to fight against menstrual insecurity?

What is menstrual insecurity?

A person is in a situation of menstrual precariousness when he or she encounters difficulties, financial or access, to obtain sanitary protection and hygiene products for his or her period.
An Ifop survey conducted in February 2019 for the charity network Dons solidaires shows that menstrual precariousness concerns 1.7 million people in France.
Another survey conducted in late 2020 among 6,518 students by student organizations, including the Fage, reveals that 13% of respondents also say they "have already had to choose between protection and another basic necessity."

What is France doing about menstrual insecurity?

In France, the first measure concerning menstrual precariousness was the reduction of the VAT rate on sanitary pads from 20% to 5.5% in 2015.
In October 2019, a parliamentary report, submitted to the government, recommended experimenting with the provision of free sanitary protection in places frequented by precarious people.
Last December, the government allocated five million euros to the fight against menstrual precariousness for the year 2021, giving priority to incarcerated women, those in precarious situations and students in colleges and high schools in priority education.

The announcements of February 23, 2021!

The Minister of Higher Education, Frédérique Vidal, announced on February 23, 2021 the availability of free sanitary pads for female students "university residences and university health services will be equipped with free and environmentally friendly sanitary pad dispensers."
Frédérique Vidal has set a goal of deploying 1,500 sanitary protection dispensers "on all campuses" by the start of the academic year in September 2021.
Since the launch of the brand, we have launched a massive collection of disposable sanitary protection from our customers and have made several donations to associations to help them find protection throughout their cycle!
