Memo: NSEA Supports Assembly Bill 224

NSEA supports AB224, to ensure feminine hygiene products are made available at no cost to students in school bathrooms and to require school districts to address the issue of lack of access to feminine hygiene products due to unaffordability.
Support AB224
Published: 04/06/2021

Access to feminine hygiene products for girls and young women in schools is a health issue, an education issue, and an equity issue. Simple access to these products of necessity would help reduce any stigma related to menstruation and would also reduce missed class time. For many years, certain educators have purchased feminine hygiene products with their own funds to keep in their classrooms to provide to girls and young women who may need them. Making these products available in girl’s bathrooms would mean these educators won’t have to spend their own money. Finally, AB224 promotes equity. Providing a basic necessity at no cost benefits girls and young women from low-income families, who may struggle to afford feminine hygiene products.
