Latest ‘Menstrual Equity’ Bill Would Require California’s Public Colleges To Provide Period Products

University of California Davis senior Audin Leung has spent their entire college career championing a novel concept — free period products throughout campuses.

“People are surprised, or they think it’s a radical idea, but it’s not a very radical idea because it’s a basic need,” Leung said.

Leung started advocating for better access to menstrual products when a friend got her period during class and couldn’t find any tampons or pads. Leung said the embarrassment their friend experienced was a familiar feeling to them, and one that often forces students to choose between hygiene and dignity or staying in class.
