Menstruation Nation Story
In 2017, a then-17-year-old high school student, began research for a program that would supply free pads and tampons within her school. Upon discovering The Period Purse®, Tait began running product drives, and launched Menstruation Nation as a way to reduce the stigma around menstrual health.
In 2018, Tait won two graduating awards for leadership and community service. As a result of her commitment, Menstruation Nation continues to expand into schools across Ontario, educating high school students about period health and wellness.
The Period Purse is expanding our Menstruation Nation education program into more schools. Are you a middle, high school student or teacher? Start the menstruation conversation and help us reduce the stigma around periods. Donate to others in your community who need free menstrual products and join us in the fight to end period poverty.
To begin a Menstruation Nation group in your school, please contact Tait@theperiodpurse.com. We will send you a copy of our handbook*, with tips for getting started.
