Period dignity wins! Free sanitary items for all in Scotland

Feb 26, 2020 17:16 IST

Here's some good news for women in Scotland! The Scottish parliament has voted in favour of a novel bill that would make sanitary products freely available for all women in the country. The legislation is a first of its kind in the world. The Period Products Scotland Bill was proposed by Scottish lawmaker Monica Lennon in 2017. Lennon told Reuters, "These are not luxury items. They are indeed essential and no one in Scotland should have to go without period products."
