The question was phrased by the source as follows: "Vous arrive-t-il de ne pas sortir de chez vous ou de manquer le travail car vous n’avez pas de protections hygiéniques ?"

The source adds the following information:
* "General public: sample of 1,807 respondents, including a sample of 1503 respondents representative of the French population and an oversample of 304 parents of children aged three years or less. Parents of young children were adjusted to their actual weight in the total population during computer processing. In total, 407 parents of children aged three years or less were interviewed."
"Association beneficiaries: sample of 760 people who are beneficiaries of charitable associations in the Dons Solidaires network)"

** "General public: interviews were conducted on the Internet from November 16 to 20, 2020.
Association beneficiaries: interviews took place by paper and online self-administered questionnaire from January 5 to February 12, 2021."

It should be noted that not all women menstruate, for various reasons (medication, illnesses, malformations, etc.) and that people who do not identify as women (non-binary people, transgender men, etc.) may have periods.
