Kick off Women’s History Month by Supporting HB 50 Menstrual Hygiene Bill in Alabama

Updated: Feb 27


On the first day of Women's History Month, Tuesday, March 1, 2022, at 1:00 p.m., the Alabama House of Representatives' Rules Committee is proposing a Resolution to place State Representative Rolanda Hollis-sponsored HB 50, the menstrual hygiene bill, as "a special and paramount order of business," "taking precedence over the regular order of business." We are asking supporters to come out to the State House on March 1 at 1:00 p.m. to support the Resolution.

Representative Rolanda Hollis introduced HB 50 to require local boards of education to provide feminine hygiene products in women's restrooms, at certain schools, at no cost to students. The bill provides $200,000 to local boards of education to implement the requirement.
