Some facts and figures:
In France, between 1.5 and 2 million people report not being able to afford to buy sanitary protection regularly.
The Federation of General Student Associations (FAGE) shows that 30% of students say they need financial help to afford these products.
- 37% of 20-29 year-olds have already had to go without period protection at least once (29% of 15-19 year-olds).
- 60% of respondents say they have missed school or work due to medical reasons related to their period.
(Survey conducted in February 2021 by the FAGE)
In order to fight against period poverty and promote gender equality and inclusion, the Feel Good and RSE teams are implementing 12 sanitary product distributors, in partnership with Marguerite & Co, in the toilets of all school buildings to give you access to sanitary products when you need them. This action is co-financed by the Brittany Region
