MLAW is excited to launch our own YouTube channel and podcasts. Please check out these informative interviews hosted by MLAW board member Shruti Bhatnagar.
March 30, 2021 – Interview with Diana Philip of NARAL Pro-Choice Maryland
Shruti and Diana discuss HB205/SB427 Public Schools – Provision of Menstrual Hygiene Products. This bill is one of the initiatives on our 2021 Agenda and calls for all public middle and high schools to install menstrual hygiene product dispensers in at least two restrooms in each building, and at least in one restroom in each elementary school by October 2021, and almost all restrooms by August 2025. Public schools will be required to install low cost, quality vending machines to supply maxi pads and tampons, free to students, with size-appropriate products. The legislation seeks to increase school attendance and extracurricular participation among menstruating students who lack access to such products, and decrease peer harassment that contributes to poor school climate. Learn more about this legislation and how it is progressing through the General Assembly. Listen here: https://youtu.be/EbF97UtZ8ww
