MASSACHUSETTS COMMISSION ON THE STATUS OF WOMEN

Thank you for Joining Us

Thank you for making your voices heard! MCSW Commissioners and staff are incredibly grateful to the many Bristol county leaders, regional commissioners, residents, legislators, and other community stakeholders who joined us for our final public hearing of 2023 at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth.

We heard powerful testimony on a myriad of issues critical to the health and well being of women, children, and families in Bristol County. Included among those was call after call – from young women as young as 13, our next generation leaders – calling for inclusive and accessible menstrual products in public schools, universities, and more.

We stand in solidarity with the Massachusetts Menstrual Equity (MME) coalition, more than 400+ menstrual activists, advocacy organizations, non profits, businesses, and public servants who’ve come together to end period poverty statewide. Your testimony directly informs MCSW’s policy priorities for the 2023-2024 legislative session. We’re stronger when we stand together. Thank you to everyone who joined us for our final public hearing of 2023!
