Feminist Friday ~ Tampon Tax

qIGmVQeIaHGXYqb-128x128-noPad

Starting July 1st Tax on Tampons, pads, menstrual cups etc. will come to an end in Canada! Happy Canada Day!

The New Democratic Party has been trying to eliminate the tax for over ten years now. Before the law implied that Tampons/pads were cosmetic products rather than necessities. You could go buy a bag of chocolate chips tax free but not sanitary pads. Cause that makes sense (sarcasm intended). Glad the government is on the same page now. I got to say I am pretty excited for this change along with so many Canadian women.

Thank you to all the women who worked hard to be heard by the government and made this positive change!

Happy Feminist Friday!
