My name is Isabela Rittinger, and I'm a 17 year old activist from Canada. I'm hoping you can help me with something.
I created a petition to the Canadian government asking them to subsidize period products during the COVID-19 outbreak. Prior to the outbreak, one third of Canadian women under the age of 25 struggled to afford period products, according to a study by Plan International Canada. Period products are basic necessities and those who menstruate should not be penalized for their bodies. Since the outbreak, period products have become a stockpiled item, making it even more difficult for women to access them.
Here is the link to the petition: https://actionnetwork.org/petitions/make-period-products-free-during-the...
Please sign and share this petition! It is our duty to demand change for those who menstruate that can't afford to be financially burdened because of the pandemic.
Thank you in advance. Stay strong, stay safe and stay healthy.
