Was this the first time @edmontonjournal put menstruation on the front page? But @NoWomanWithout is the second #yeg non-profit formed recently to collect menstrual products (see also All Cycles YEG).
It's part of a growing global discussion #yegcc #ableg
Women and trans folk in shelters aren't the only ones impacted. Low-income girls who can’t access enough products are likely to miss school. Any woman surprised by an unpredictable period in public faces a desperate scramble. #yegcc #ableg (2/...)
New York City made emergency tampons/pads free in schools, jails and shelters. @TorontosMayor declared last May 28 "Menstrual Hygiene Day" and several university campuses now stock backup product. #yegcc #ableg (3/...)

(Didn't ask @doniveson his plans 😏)
I puzzled about it for a week, loath to think I would side with adding more cost to business and government. But I can’t get over the similarity to toilet paper.

The only difference seems to be that roughly half the population needs it. #yegcc #ableg (4/...)
What @NoWomanWithout and All Cycles do is a band aid. Women, men and trans people are now welcome to participate equally in public life. Their basic needs should be considered in a public washroom
Link is here. Love to hear yr thoughts
