One year on from petitioning for schools to provide sanitary products

From Afternoons, 1:17 pm on 11 August 2020

In August last year, Dignity co-founder, Jacinta Gulasekharam, delivered a petition to parliament calling for the ministry of education to provide free period products in schools.

In June this year the government announced it would go ahead with a scheme to allow schools to access the free products.

Jacinta speaks to Jesse about her campaign and the work she's doing to battle period poverty elsewhere.
