Share the Dignity works to make a real, on-the-ground difference in the lives of women and girls experiencing homelessness, fleeing domestic violence or doing it tough. They distribute sanitary items to those in need and work to end period poverty here in Australia. When a woman is doing it tough, the last thing on her mind should be dealing with her period.
In 2015, Share the Dignity was founded after identifying there was a genuine need to provide vulnerable women in our community with essential sanitary products. It was reported that these women are often forced to choose between buying food to eat or buying expensive sanitary items to get through their periods.
Working tirelessly with over 5000 volunteers, the charity has been able to deliver over 2.5 million packets of pads and tampons and over 517,918 essential-filled handbags to Australian women and girls.
Share the Dignity are proud to partner with over 2000 charities nationally, helping them to assist the women, girls and those who menstruate who desperately need access to period products. This is achieved through their Dignity Drives and PinkBox Dignity Vending Machines.
Women in Finance is proud to be partnering with Share the Dignity in 2021 and 2022 to help make a difference to the lives of women and girls doing it tough in Australia
