Meeting with Monica Lennon MSP
Written by Robyn Todd:
Members of Dundee Youth Council had the exciting experience to meet Monica Lennon last week. She is currently traveling around Scotland, collecting information for her consultation on period poverty. We were very keen to meet her and share our ideas which we hope will benefit girls and women in our local constituency of Dundee and also around Scotland.
The University of Dundee had just launched their own practice against period poverty on Friday and the giving out the provisions needed to combat this for free. We were very fortunate to be able to able to speak to her on this busy day. After speaking to our own councilors, we are very encouraged to hope that Dundee City will be next to follow in ensuring that there will be an end to period poverty.
We would like to thank Monica very much for her time and encourage anyone who hasn’t already to fill out her consultation. For those who have- keep sharing!
