Remove VAT on sanitary towels and tampons

Remove VAT on sanitary towels and tampons

Change the VAT law on sanitary hygiene

Why is this important?

Because women and girls have to use them, they are very expensive and in the current climate of public sector and part time job cuts, women are being hit by something they cannot control.


Reasons for signing

  • Sanitary hygiene is a necessity, not a luxury. There are no hygienic alternatives. Women with limited resources might be tempted to an individual sanitary item longer than recommended, thereby increasing the risk of infection/toxic shock syndrome.
  • This ain't no luxury FOOL
  • because bleeding, cramping and craving for a week every month is such a luxury
