Proud to lead the way

- Scotland · United Kingdom

VERY proud that Scot­land has be­come the first coun­try to make san­i­tary prod­ucts free.

Women should never have to live in pe­riod poverty, no mat­ter what their per­sonal cir­cum­stances might be.

It seems ex­traor­di­nary to me that un­til March of this year, san­i­tary prod­ucts were taxed as a ‘lux­ury’ in the UK.

And a teensy part of me won­ders whether, if it was men who mens t r uated, t hey ever would have been in the first place.
