Two girls fighting for period equality, one school at a time!

We are Mya Abdelwahab and Nicole Soret, two juniors at The Young Women's Leadership School of Astoria, and the co-founders of a social movement called “Femstrate.” As two students at a public all-girls school in New York City, we want to make sure all people feel safe and secure during the Corona Virus pandemic. 

Previously, we crafted a letter to the Mayor, asking that menstrual products, which most Department of Education Meal Hub sites already had in their possession, be handed out to people who need them, in the same way food was being handed out. Through our work with government leaders, the letter made it to the DOE, and efforts are currently being made to distribute these products at Meal Hub Sites. 

Now, our goal is to distribute period products to people in need during quarantine through community-based organizations.  We need your help to start donating to these distribution centers, which will deliver the products to people who are unable to get to the meal hub sites!

Please donate today to help sponsor our initiative! If you would like to help us along our journey, please contact us at femstrate@tywls-astoria.org
