“Aunt Flo Meets Uncle Sam: Menstruating While Incarcerated”

Article Link

This December 5, 2014 article from The Fair JLT website talks about the reality that women in prison face when menstruating that reality is summed up as they are very lucky to get a few pads  that aren’t enough to to allow them to properly care for themselves, and that’s if they are lucky enough to get any feminine hygiene items at all.

As I read the article, I began wondering if there was anything I could do to help women who are incarcerated to maybe prevent them from having to bleed through their clothing because they don’t have access to the needed feminine hygiene items.  I don’t know where to start, but it is something I’m thinking would be worth looking into even if I can only help women at my local county jail, I feel like it would be a starting point.
