Period Equality at Queen Mary

By QMResWelfare 21 Mar 2023

As a Queen Mary student, free period products are provided to you from several locations on campus. These are being provided to support both staff and students with their menstrual health and reduce the impact of period poverty.

In the current cost of living crisis, period poverty is becoming an increased issue, with those who menstruate facing issues with the affordability of period products alongside the rise of costs of other products.

Queen Mary is also currently working towards providing reusable period products.
