Hi All,

I've posted this on other chats, but highlighting here for your support.

Girls should not be missing school because they have their period!

Yesterday, I heard about a 13yr old girl who ended up in hospital because she used socks as as she couldn't afford sanitary products. This is not acceptable in the UK, but it's happening and it's happening in 2017.

Please can you sign this petition to eradicate period poverty from schools. Sanitary provision is NOT a luxury, and periods are not a choice.

This petition to Theresa May is to provide free sanitary products to girls from low income families was started by a 17yr old girl. We should support her will to help other schoolgirls.

It only takes 15 seconds to sign, I know because I just did it.

Please share so we can change this appalling situation. We can't stand back and watch this happen to our young girls.

Sanpro are certainly NOT a luxury. The government has to be helping these girls.

Great cause started by a teenager. I know I wasn't thinking about social justice when I was 17 so good for her!

Why won't it let me sign? It keeps saying it doesn't recognise my address and needs more info. Has anyone else had this?

That's odd. Try again. Here's the link, in case.
