Striving for Menstrual Equity

the period purse mission


The Period Purse creates menstrual equity by ensuring sustainable access to period products for all, and by ending the stigma associated with periods through education and advocacy.

the period purse vision


For menstruation to be understood and treated with dignity, and for period products to be free for all.



We believe that menstruation should be understood and respected.


We are committed to taking positive action to end the discriminatory stigma associated with menstruation.


We believe that the availability of the full variety of period products to all people who menstruate is a fundamental right.


As a collective and with our partners in the community, we are determined to pursue all ways of affecting positive change for all people who menstruate, for generations to come.


We respectfully acknowledge the land we live and work on is the traditional territory of many nations including the Haudenosaunee, the Anishinabewaki, the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, Mississauga, and the Wendat peoples and is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. We also acknowledge that Toronto is covered by Treaty 13 with the Mississaugas of the Credit.
