If you can get free condoms from clinics then you should be able to get free pads/tampons.

I sympathize... but remember my mother telling me how washing out the rags she used was part of life.

Ruby Cup donates cups with your purchase. Cups hold more fluid for heavy days and are ideal for school or work or any time you away from home.

I worked for a multi-national company, one of the biggest in the world, I had a good salary and we had free pads to use in the ladies. Schools in India, hardly have proper toilets.

Basic health care. If men were to have the same autonomy, you bet these would be free for all and not allowed to have unregulated pesticides treat the cotton used for them.

What did women use before the invention of the tampon? Women always want free shit. Healthcare Birth control education whats next?? Dildos? Every woman should have the right to a free vibrator.

I agree that they should be free, in the UK they are also taxed as a luxury item, (probably most places) like having a period is a luxury! However, I also think that using moon cups and reusables are better, also teaching women to make their own sanitary towels that can be washed and reused is also a good way to re-gain control over our bodies. All sanitary products companies are run by men and I feel its good to be self sufficient and take the power away from these big companies.... Not to mention the waste issue with disposable products. No one should feel period shame. I quit a job after being made to feel bad about my endometriosis and having to have a day off sometimes.
