84% have either issued class time or known someone who has missed class time because they did not have access to period products. Girl Up!’s biggest initiative this year was to get administration’s approval to install dispensers in all the girl’s bathrooms. Although an expensive endeavor, the club was drawn to this cause after reviewing various statistics such as this one and collecting anecdotes from the student body. After extensive planning, fundraising, and meetings with the Girl Up! club, the health department, and administration, Girl Up! is proud to announce that they will place bins in all Garnet Valley High School bathrooms. This program will be implemented later in the year. They hope to see their vision come to fruition that no person will have to miss out on class time because they don’t have access to period products in the bathroom.
