In honor of International Women's Day on March 8th, AEOA is hosting a period supply drive to help women in need.

  • 1 in 4 women struggled to purchase period products within the past year due to lack of income.
  • 1 in 8 Minnesota women and girls between the ages of 12 and 44 lives below the Federal Poverty Line.
  • 275,600 women between the ages of 19 and 64 are covered by Medicaid. While Medicaid provides protection for healthcare needs, individuals still struggle to access the material basic necessities they require to thrive.
  • Menstruation requires an average of 6 period products per day, with an average woman spending $6,360 in her lifetime on supplies.
  • On average a woman menstruates for about 7 years during their lifetime. From the time of her first cycle to menopause, the average American woman will have around 450 periods in her lifetime. This results in the average woman needing approximately 11,000 tampons in her lifetime.

All dollars will be distributed to the seven food shelves fiscally sponsored by AEOA and local organizations within the county collected.

The U.S. celebrates National Women’s History Month for a whole 31 days during March. March 8th specifically marks a global observance of women worldwide with International Women's Day. International Women's Day (IWD) was born on March 8, 1908, when 15,000 women marched through the streets of New York City to demand shorter hours, better pay, and the right to vote. This day is now celebrated in many countries around the world. It is a day when women are recognized for their political, cultural, and socioeconomic achievements without regard to divisions, whether national, ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic or political. This day puts the spotlight on gender-related issues spanning from the wage gap and trans rights to violence and abuse against women and reproductive rights.
