Working Toward Period Equity in Hamilton County, IN
Period stations: areas where students can readily access period products as they need throughout the day.
Some students are reluctant to ask a nurse or other school personnel for a pad or tampon if needed. The stations allow students to discreetly select what they need. Basic stations have pads, tampons, and possibly liners. It is good to vary the absorbencies/sizes of these items if possible.
More involved stations have underwear and leggings in case students bleed onto/through their clothes and need to change. Some offer additional hygiene items such as deodorant.
We are here to offer advice on setting one up, support throughout the process, and can provide pads, tampons, liners, underwear, and leggings to stock the stations!
