What's the #tilii survey about?
Periods can affect many aspects of a woman's life. The #tilii survey (Tell It Like It Is) is designed to understand the effect, if any, periods have on your work and study life.
The purpose of this research project is to also understand who accesses free period products and whether they have a positive impact on those who use them.
Queensland University of Technology (QUT) is undertaking research to understand the experience of people who have periods in workplaces, TAFE and Universities.
You are invited to participate in this research project if you are an employee or student who has periods and would like to support this research by sharing your experiences and opinions.
Why's it so important?
Grab a cuppa. The #tilii survey only takes a few minutes. This is not a test and the survey is anonymous. The benefit of participating allows QUT researchers to understand more about how periods affect people who are studying or working and the impact of providing free period products in places of study and work.
This survey is for people over 18 years who have periods.
Employees and students in Universities, TAFE and workplaces are invited to participate. You can request a summary of the outcomes of the study at the end of the survey, a report is expected to be made public by the end of 2022.
Participation involves completing an online survey that takes less than 10 minutes to complete and asks questions like:
How do you feel about your period?
Have you ever missed study or work because of your period?
Have you accessed free period products at your place of study or work?

We acknowledge that that not all people who menstruate identify as female, so we are inviting anyone who has periods to participate.
This survey is anonymous, so we can never know who you are. All your answers are private and confidential. We will analyse your answers with all the other answers we get and write a report that will be used by people who care about women’s health and wellbeing. No one will ever know your individual answer to any question because personal identifying information is not sought in any of the questions.
Dr Ruth Knight, Louise Baldwin & Kaiti Peters are researchers from Queensland University of Technology (QUT) conducting the research and writing a report that will be publicly available for anyone interested in the results of the research. The report will also be shared on social media and the results might be shared in other ways too such as media reports.
