    Did you know that one in four women struggle to purchase period products? With a lack of steady access to period supplies, women use substitute products, stretch products beyond healthy boundaries, and even skip work and school. And with more than one million people living in poverty in Chicago, tens of thousands of women in the city are confronted with these effects each month.

    How can we make something as natural as a woman’s period less of a factor in determining other parts of her life? Join us for a conversation presented by U by Kotex at Walgreens that will bring together a group of activists and policymakers who are addressing this issue to explore the local, national, and global impact. Together, we’ll identify tactical steps that can catalyze action—and help make period poverty a thing of the past.
