Petition Give students a legal right to access school toilets when they have their period

Bright Futures NE proposes that young people should have a legal right to access school toilets when they have their periods. Young people, when they have their period, should never be refused access to use the toilet.

More details

Young people who have periods during school hours are sometimes denied access to toilets. This prevents young people from having a period with dignity, causing shame, embarrassment and preventing them from changing period products. We believe this is inconsistent with the right to dignity and basic human rights - as per the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. Bright Futures NE propose young people with periods, by law be given a right to access school toilets.
