Menstrual Health

Menstrual health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease, in relation to the menstrual cycle.

Period Equity Project

The goal of the Period Equity Project is to provide menstrual education to reduce stigma, empower menstruators and menstrual allies, and enhance overall well-being. By providing comprehensive information about menstrual health, anatomy, and hygiene practices, students are empowered to understand and care for their bodies. These sessions will enable individuals to make informed choices about their reproductive health, leading to greater autonomy and agency now and in the future. Access to education ensures that all participants have a deeper appreciation and respect for the menstrual cycle, challenging the status quo and becoming agents of change to combat oppressive social systems and unjust structures in society.

We hope you will join us to learn about and contribute to changing the culture around menstruation in the USF community and beyond. Participants will be able to enjoy complimentary coffee & tea and take home their menstrual product of choice (tampons, pads, period underwear, or menstrual cup).
