I am writing a petition to fix a problem that 50% of the nation’s population faces; the taxation on tampons and pads. Having your period is not convenient and isn’t a preference. In fact, it is the complete opposite. It is obscene that some men think that using a tampon or pad is categorised as ‘luxury’. It is unhygienic to not use a tampon or pad, and we are not only doing this for ourselves but for those around us. Since 2000, the Australian Government has taxed every menstruating Australian woman 10%, every time we get our period. The tampon and pad tax is basically a tax on being a woman. This is not only expensive but very misogynistic.
