Are we really living in 2017? It is absolutely abhorrent that girls are missing school because they can't afford sanitary products.
As women, we are discriminated against pretty much at every stage of our lives, and to have to miss out on an education because we are born with a uterus is unjust and wholly unacceptable.
For the government to display such a willful inertia to act, is nothing short of gender bias, yet again. Without an uninterrupted education, aren't these girls permanently trapped in a cycle of poverty?
Condoms are handed out at bars, clubs and in clinics for free, but these young girls are struggling to afford basic amenities which are absolutely necessary. Basic sanitation is a right and Education is necessary.
As a mum, sister, and daughter, can I please ask that everyone signs and share this petition. I will also be writing to my MP about this. Thank you.
