What is menstrual equity?
Dotstash is committed to supporting the menstrual equity movement. We specialize in the implementation of legislation in various states.
Menstruators that got their period in public without notice.
Menstruators that missed school at least once due to their periods.
Students that left class at least once to get menstrual products.
Over 22 states have taken notice and passed or enacted Menstrual Equity bills with more being introduced. The following map shows states that have passed or enacted in the United States (both at the state and federal levels) in 2022 to address the safety, affordability or accessibility of menstrual care products.

"Risking getting in trouble by texting a friend during class, having to discreetly get up and find [a pad or tampon], or asking random people in the hallways all take away from valuable class time." - Dixie, High School Student
