Numerous students live in a menstrual precariousness situation.
With the sanitary crisis, this phenomenon has been amplified.
On this Monday, March 8, International Women’s Right Day, we decided to talk about an action involving menstrual protection.
The menstrual precariousness refers to the lack of access to periodic protections for those who are settled, due to poverty. According with the FAGE results, 33% of the students feel that they need help in obtaining menstrual protection.
On February 23, 2021, Frédérique Vidal, the Minister of Higher Education, announced that menstrual protection would be distributed free of charge in universities and CROUS, at the start of the 2021 school year.
To accompany this announcement and to fight against menstrual precariousness in France, the Carrefour* group has decided to set up at the national scale, free menstrual protection for the students.
In fact, from March 2nd to August 31st, the students will be able to obtain a free pack of tampons and sanitary pads per month, by presenting the student card and the other modalities designated by Carrefour, at the checkout.
We wish you a pleasant International Women’s Right Day !
