Share the Dignity

About

Early in 2015, an article by Mia Freedman published on Mamamia caught our attention. We were shocked to learn that in Australia many homeless women and women in domestic violence shelters had to face unthinkable indignities during their monthly period. For these vulnerable and at risk women, each month brought a shameful and traumatic experience, suffering indignities such as having to clean themselves in public toilets and use paper towels or newspaper to create makeshift sanitary pads. Reading it from the comfort of our homes, with the knowledge that many Australian women couldn’t take hygiene for granted during menstruation, we knew we couldn’t allow it to continue.

We believe that sanitary items should be a right NOT a privilege.

In April and August we hold our collections for sanitary items, In November we hold our #itsinthebag campaign.
Collection points around Australia help us in our mission to ensure every woman has dignity when dealing with her monthly period.
