Through publication of this report, the Commissioner hopes to raise the issue of menstrual wellbeing as a significant area of gender equity policy; one that must be addressed to improve the participation, education and wellbeing outcomes of all young South Australians who menstruate.

Given the wide-ranging impacts of menstruation on key aspects of a young person’s life, the onus should be on all sectors across the state – education, business, health, and community – to recognise menstrual wellbeing and dignity as a systemic issue and one that is fundamental to children’s rights, central to economic productivity and to achieving gender equity across the State.
