Period Poverty Prevalent In St. Louis, Study Finds

On International Women’s Day, over 100 women, and a few men gathered at the YWCA to learn about the impact period poverty has on families, society and low-income women trying to climb out of economic strife. The event was hosted by the Women’s Foundation of Greater St. Louis.

“Our mission is focused on economic independence to women and girls, and having access to period supplies effects girl’s attendance at school, it affects women going to work, if women are making choices about buying period supplies or buying food for their families, that’s a key to economic security and we wanted to shine a light on that,” said Lisa Picker, the executive director of the Women’s Foundation who hosted the event.
