Isn’t access to hygiene considered a basic human right?
Canada will continue to stand up for the rule of law, democracy and human rights at home and abroad. Unfortunately, it fails in one sector.
Talking about human rights, there is one basic human right that is often overlooked because they affect mainly women. The lack of access to feminine hygiene products is not just a problem that happens “elsewhere”. it’s happening here, too, in Canada. Did you know that nearly 1 in 7 girls in Canada miss school because they don’t have access to period protection?
Making sure that all girls and women have access to proper hygiene will make a positive difference in many peoples’ lives.
