Share the Dignity
After reading in 2015 that homeless women Australia-wide were making sanitary pads out of public restroom toilet paper because they couldn’t afford to buy them, Rochelle Courtenay felt a call to action. She started a small sanitary collection in her local Brisbane neighbourhood and donated the items to a women’s shelter. Through demand, the not-for-profit charity Share the Dignity was born, providing homeless and at-risk women around Australia with sanitary items.
Rochelle, affectionately known as “Pad lady” didn’t set out to be a social entrepreneur yet her work is helping eliminate period poverty in Australia, where homeless girls and women or those fleeing domestic violence suffer the indignity of having to choose between food and sanitary products.
