What happens when you don’t have the money to buy period products?
On this episode we’ve got the most recent research on the State of the Period in lutruwita/Tasmania. We speak to a period undies advocate, Jemma about what dignity means when you live on a low income. We also talk to Vikki Iwanicki from Queenstown about what period poverty looks like when you get out of the city.
Listen if you want to understand both the personal and big picture of period poverty in lutruwita, and how we can change it!
