Campaign on period poverty
Published on: 24 Nov 2017
A NEW campaign group formed by three Fishponds women is bringing the message that ‘poverty is pants’ to Bristol.
The campaign aims to highlight the problem of ‘period poverty’ where women in the UK are having to choose between buying sanitary products or food.
Alison Findlay, Kate Brooks and graphic designer Helen Miller, who designed the ‘poverty is pants’ logo, were determined to do something when they discovered how girls were missing school due to being unable to afford basic sanitary hygiene products.
