Prime Minister Jacinta Arden announced on Thursday (February 18) that New Zealand would distribute free time in schools to combat “menstrual insecurity”. According to one study, one in twelve teenage girls did not go to school during this period. “Young people should not miss out on their education because half of the youth have something in common”, She justified.

“Providing free coverage at school is a way for the government to directly address poverty and help increase school attendance, which will benefit the well-being of children.”

The project will cost some NZ $ 25 million (approximately 15 million) in three years starting in June. The Prime Minister explained that it follows a pilot program, which last year helped students become more involved in their studies and achieve better academic results.

“Menstrual insecurity” affects women who cannot afford sanitary napkins, tampons and pain medications. Last year, Scotland became the first country in the world to grant privacy to all public buildings.
