PROVIDENCE, Rhode Island, September 8, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) — In an effort to be “trans-inclusive” and help their low-income peers, Brown University students are placing tampons in men’s restrooms across campus.

Viet Nguyen, the president of the Undergraduate Council of Students, sent a campus-wide email about how “There’s been a lot of conversation about why pads and tampons are a necessity, not a luxury, but not a lot of action.” Students “wanted to take it into our own hands.”

Nguyen told Newsweek that the undergraduate finance board will pay for menstrual products in approximately 30 to 40 bathrooms across campus for the 2016–2017 school year.

“We wanted to set a tone of trans-inclusivity,” Nguyen said.

“Nguyen’s campaign highlights an often-ignored fact: Not all people who menstruate are women,” Newsweek explained.

Brown University’s annual tuition is $50,224. The Ivy League school is consistently ranked one of the top universities in the United States. It also boasts a prestigious biology department.
