For homeless women, finding shelter is just one of a huge bundle of challenges. Add to that safety, security and then the complications of hormones and menstrual cycles; homeless women have been known to use old clothes, socks and even leaves during their period. Cecelia and I chat with Donna from The Period Project about supporting homeless women. In this episode you’ll learn why people find themselves living on the streets (it’s far less likely a result of drugs and alcohol), why you’ll think more laterally when supporting the homeless and how we can no longer take our simple staples like sanitary items for granted.
