Approved resolution is silent on funding mechanism
The University of Texas-Austin could become one of the largest schools in the country to provide “free” menstrual products to students.
The sponsors of the student legislative resolution are using research paid for by a menstrual-rights group to promote their cause, but the research may not back up the sponsors’ claims, according to a professor who reviewed it forThe College Fix.
Student activists on campuses across the country have been demanding the provision of menstrual products in campus facilities, for emergency purposes or the benefit of poorer students, with mixed results.
The joint resolution was brought to the floor of the UT Senate of College Councils, the “official voice for students in academic affairs,” nearly two months ago. It was quickly approved,The Daily Texanreported then.
Co-author Jordee Rodriguez cited the difficulty of being a college student, and how often female students may be caught off guard when their cycle starts.
“Currently, 86 percent of women or menstruating people are caught off guard whenever they begin their periods, and that is academically deleterious,” Rodriguez said, according to theDaily, which did not mention a source for Rodriguez’s statistic.
