One´s period does not know perfect timing. Therefore, it sometimes happens that menstruating people are simply surprised by their period – especially during ones school years, when it also occurs irregularly. In order to remedy this situation and to alleviate period poverty a little, this motion (NR.124) instructs the magistrate to develop a pilot project for freely available menstrual products in all Schools in Frankfurt, including primary schools, as well as facilities for youth work. We have already implemented this project in some schools in Frankfurt.

Volt Frankfurt: the political party
Volt Frankfurt is part of Volt Europe, the first party that is the same all over Europe. In Frankfurt, at the heart of Europe, we fight for a progressive, sustainable and united EU. We work according to the motto: Think global, act local.
Nearly one million people live and work in Frankfurt. The challanges we face are shared with over 100 Million people in metropolies all over europe. Volt stands for the urban living of tomorrow, using progressive and pragmatic solutions.
We want to implement concepts that were already proven successful in other european cities. Be it lowering rents like Vienna, cycling like in Copenhagen or digital gouvernment services like Estland: we want to solve Problems, instead of just pushing them to the next election cycle.
