The Unsettling Reason Some Australian Girls Are Skipping School
Of the 3.2 million Australians currently living below the poverty line, 52% of those are women and young girls. Some of those young girls are experiencing what is now referred to as ‘period poverty’.
In today’s episode of The Quicky, we’ll be discussing period poverty with Rochelle Courtenay from Share The Dignity. We’ll also be speaking with 17-year-old Rachel, who bravely shares her homelessness journey and the impact her period had on her schooling.
