• Won’t people take advantage of the program? Expand dropdown
    Other universities that have implemented free menstrual product programs have reported that during the first few months people may take a bit more than they need, but once students realize that the free pads and tampons are here to stay, overuse is no longer an issue.
  • Why do you say “people” instead of “women” Expand dropdown
    Inclusivity matters, so EMU Changing The Cycle (and Aunt Flow!) use gender neutral language like “period products” instead of “feminine hygiene products.” Transgender men and non-binary or gender non-conforming people can get periods too! This is also why 5 of our first 8 dispensers are in all-gender bathrooms. Now everyone can get the products that they need. To learn more about inclusive language for periods, please visit our website.
  • Why isn’t there a dispenser in ______ building? Expand dropdown
    Good news! As part of our Anybody, Any Building campaign, every building on EMU's campus will have free period products available soon. During our pilot program, we chose a limited number of locations based on location, expected traffic, and anticipated need, but now we're ready to expand everywhere so that anyone can get what they need, when and where they need it! Keep an eye on our social media for updates about the new dispenser installation.
