The average woman spends 2,535 days of her life menstruating. 🔴
Menstruation is a healthy part of having a uterus.
Regardless of our financial or social situation, we must purchase or otherwise obtain access to enough pads/tampons/menstrual cups/period panties to bleed for nearly seven years of our life. 🤯
This is why it is INSANE that period products are taxed in 35 US states.
And that you can’t use food stamps or health spending allowances to purchase menstrual products. They are also not covered by health insurance OR Medicaid.
Despite being a necessity for half the population, they are still viewed as “luxury items” and taxed as such.
