Emma Horst-Martz ’18 created the Menstrual Health Pilot Program to break the stigma of menstruation and provide free pads and tampons in dispensers located in restrooms around campus. The program launched with three dispensers in the student center; two more were recently added in the library.

Plans are in place to add more dispensers in the athletic center and Cummings Arts Center, according to Emma Anderson ’18, who is running the program this spring. Through the new partnership with Cora, the program will purchase Cora’s organic tampons and provide them free to the College community.

“We are very excited to promote a good cause and move toward better menstrual health, both at Connecticut College and around the world,” Anderson said.
