Menstrual Product Accessibility Initiative
March 15, 2023
KINGSTON, ON – The AMS is thrilled to reintroduce our Menstrual Product Accessibility Initiative.
We hope that by providing menstrual products, folks within the Queen’s community will be able to feel a sense of security in menstrual product accessibility. This initiative began in 2019-2020 when the AMS launched a series of projects and advocacy efforts for menstrual rights and accessibility with the club Queen’s Period, including the popular ‘Take1Leave 1’ project. The initiative was officially recognized by the University in 2020 and they installed free menstrual product dispensers in the Queen’s Centre. Our goal is to expand access across campus with the support of the University.
Please fill out the survey regarding access to menstrual products at Queen’s University. The more feedback you give us, the more helpful our data will be! The AMS works hard to represent the needs and desires of the student population here at Queen’s University, and through these surveys, we can better understand the perceptions, opinions, needs and experiences of students studying at Queen’s.
