The town of Brookline, Massachusetts, is set to become the first municipality to provide free menstrual products at all of its public restrooms.
The residents of the town voted last week to approve the measure. Under the new bylaw, menstrual hygiene products will reportedly be placed in both women’s restrooms and men’s restrooms to accommodate those who identify as female and those who do not.
The measure was reportedly started by a group of students at a local high school. It will reportedly cost $7,300 to cover expenses for dispensary machines and the products this year.
