the essential This Friday 22 October, Pollux Association is offering a free concert in Albi, organized as part of Student Week.
For this concert, Pollux Asso has decided to forge a partnership with the association “Basic rules”, recognized for being the first French association to fight against menstrual insecurity.
This open-access concert will allow the collection of personal hygiene products, which will then be redistributed to women in need. Indeed, even if this information still often goes under the radar, today there are 2 million women who do not have sufficient access to these essential hygiene products. The mission of Elementary Rules is to break the taboo reigning around the rules and to fight against this menstrual precariousness. With this concert, Pollux offers the opportunity to help the most disadvantaged with small gestures. A collection box will be placed at the entrance of the concert, in which can be deposited: panty liners, tampons, disposable or washable sanitary napkins, menstrual cups, menstrual panties … Opened packages and bulk products are accepted, only if they are individually wrapped.
