Menstrual Equity at CSUN

Menstrual equity involves de-stigmatizing periods and addressing menstruating individuals' lack of access to proper hygiene products. Explore the following sections to learn more about the menstrual equity work being done at CSUN.

Go With the Flow

Go With the Flow

The Go With the Flow program is funded by a Campus Quality Free obtained by Sarah Johnson (Institute for Sustainability), Dr. Lisa Chaudhari (Health Equity Research and Education Center), and Shira Brown (Women’s Research and Resource Center). Go with the Flow builds on years of collaboration with students, faculty, and staff and the work surrounding menstrual equity at CSUN.

Program goals:

  • To recognize and understand disparities associated with menstruation through peer-supported education.
  • Speak openly and confidently about menstruation without stigma.
  • Identify how to access a variety of menstrual health products to meet their individual needs.
  • Understand impact of single-use and reusable menstrual products.

Request a Presentation

The Peer Ambassadors are available to educate the campus community on menstrual equity, menstrual product options, and how to reduce stigma around menstruation through presentations, workshops and tabling.
