    A whopping 83% of students who menstruate feel ashamed when leaving the classroom with period products, according to the States of the Period 2021 study conducted by @periodmovement and @shethinx. This is just one of the barriers students face when it comes to being able to have positive period experiences. This cycle of shame needs to end so that all menstruating students can shift their full focus on their education.
