Period poverty is known as the lack of access to menstrual care products, hygiene, and education surrounding menstruation. This is an issue prevalent for many women globally, and even here in Massachusetts.
Dignity Matters is a non-profit organization aimed at providing impoverished and homeless women with a reliable monthly source of menstrual products and underwear. Supporting more than 10,000 women and girls each month, Dignity Matters envisions a world where “ALL women can manage their period with dignity.” Dignity Matters partners with 160 schools, shelters, food pantries and medical clinics, and Dignity Matters distributed nearly 2 million free menstrual care items to women in need in 2021.
