WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. -- Purdue University will offer free tampons and other feminine hygiene products in the campus bathrooms in response to student advocates who have been pushing for the move for three years.
University President Mitch Daniels on Thursday credited the University Senate, a faculty-led body, for proposing the initiative in a resolution that described feminine hygiene products as a basic necessity that should be in campus restrooms free of charge.
Alison Rickert, a junior studying neurobiology and physiology at Purdue, founded The Period Project an initiative aimed at providing menstrual products to those who need them both in and out of university walls. She said Purdues decision resulted from she and other students advocating for the same issue.
We didnt all know each other, necessarily, Rickert said. But we all were heading to the same place. Thats how movements happen, right?
Audrey Ruple, chair of the University Senates Equity and Diversity Committee, said she expected pushback, but Daniels support reassured her.
Its a lot of work for someone and some money, Rickert said Thursday. But its happening. Finally. What a great day.
The West Lafayette campus has more than 650 womens and gender-neutral bathrooms in the academic and administration buildings, Purdue spokeswoman Rebecca Terry said. That number doesnt include residence halls or athletic facilities.

They are really good for washing and waxing the guy’s cars!...............
Mitch Daniels? Sheesh! With Republicans like this, who needs Democrats?
Adam Schiff is interested.
In and out of University walls? What exactly does this mean?
Notice how they don’t give away free soap, shampoo, or toothpaste, maybe because they aren’t used by students and staff.
watch student fees to increase $10/mo to pay for all that ‘free’ stuff
Doesn’t Title IX require equal spending on something for men? How about free beer in the Men’s Rest Rooms?
I found some free ones today while cleaning up a parking lot - slightly used but free ...
” in response to student advocates”
You mean faggot and tranny-loving advocates. Seriously, this country needs to purge these assholes.
Or wiping down your dipstick. You know, to get a nice clean view.
As I guy I don’t know much about this, but it’s my impression from walking through grocery store aisles that there is a wide variety of tampons available. Why can’t young women buy the products they prefer instead of getting them for “free”? Since women make up the majority of students, they will be paying for most of the “free” tampons through higher college fees.
More female welfare.
Some commercial sales rep for Kimberly-Clark just booked a vacation on Maui.
Betting they are available in the men’s room as well.
Mash. ..house arrest
I can step in, I can step out
Okay. But why is this considered News?
you know in third world countries girls/women can’t go to school when they have their periods. They don’t have pads/tampons.
Why not send them the free stuff? no we have to give it to snowflakes who make themselves more ignorant by going to liberal colleges.
