This May 19, 2014 article on the Huffington Post website talks about the reality faced by female teens and adults who live in poverty and struggle to have items like pads or tampons, because they simply can’t afford them. The article describes what they do instead of using disposable pads each month and touches on an article about what it’s also like for women in prison who are at the mercy of state and federal budgets when it comes to being able to have enough hygiene items on hand to meet their needs.
