Fund free female sanitary products, such as sanitary towels and tampons
The Government should fund the provision of free female sanitary products, because it’s a natural occurrence that women cannot control or choose not to have, and sanitary products are very expensive and the cheaper ones available can cause many females rashes and other problems.
I believe that it’s unfair for women of all ages to have to pay for items they need. We cannot control our periods and can’t chose whether to have them or not. There are many women, such as myself, who struggle to afford them.
The cheaper products sold can cause many women with more sensitive bodies rashes and other problems, meaning we have to buy the more expensive ones to ensure we are not irritated and put through more pain whilst it’s our time of the month.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
