At femPAQ, not only is our mission to provide convenience to women's menstrual health but also using that power to do our part in ending period poverty as well as changing the stigma surrounding periods through storytelling.
1 in 5 girls in America has either left early or missed school during their monthly cycle due to the lack of access to menstrual products. In Arkansas, 2 in 9 women and girls between the age of 12- 44 live below the Federal Poverty Line. Period Poverty equates to missed opportunity.
Over 200k menstruators suffer from homelessness in the US with only a little over 10k community housing and shelters. The common use of plastic bags and cardboard are used as substitutes for period products.
femPAQ is about sustainability and providing healthy menstrual hygiene care so that menstruating people can continue their day without hesitation.
