Scotland becomes first country in the world to make sanitary products free for women

The bill was approved by 121 votes to zero after it earned the support of the Scottish government and the other opposition parties on Tuesday.

“The ‘Period Products (Free Provision) (Scotland) Bill was a “practical and progressive” piece of legislation that became all the more important due to coronavirus pandemic,” a report in Skynews online quoted Lennon as saying.

After the passing of the bill, the sanitary products will be made available in public buildings including schools and universities across Scotland. The new rules stipulate that the local authorities are required to ensure the free availability of the products.

The MSP further said that periods don’t stop for pandemics and the work to improve access to essential tampons, pads and reusables has never been more important.

Muttreja said that it is not an easy task to educate girl students about the benefits of using sanitary napkins (Representative Image). Rajasthan: ‘70% of female adolescents had zero access to sanitary napkins during lockdown’

The Labour MP is said to be working to tackle period poverty since she was elected in 2016.

“On the issue of period dignity, I am beyond proud that Scotland is leading the way and we have moved at a fast pace in a short space of time,” the MSP Monica Lennon said.

Lennon further said that Scotland will not be the last country to make period poverty history. She said the new rule was a signal to the world that free universal access to period products can be achieved.

It is estimated that the financial cost of the new ruling to the Scottish government could be around 8.7 million pound a year by 2022.

Interesting to say the least.😊 Being way past menopause, that’s one major biological headache I don’t have to deal with anymore. 😊

Me either, but I think it’s a good thing to do. I was fortunate to work at a place for a number of years that did provide complimentary sanitary supplies in the women’s RR’s. Came in handy in case one forgot to bring anything.

I’m with you Benny, those products can really cut into a young lady’s disposable income.

This issue is a big one for one of my friends, can’t wait to share this news with her!
