So in Australia at the moment there is this huge debate going on about the GST and the unfair tax on sanitary products. Incase you are behind on this topic here is a little about it:
Since 2000, the Australian Government has taxed every menstruating Australian 10% every time we get our period. It is estimated that our periods earn the government a whopping $25 million each year!
And why are we taxed GST on our periods because the Australian government doesn’t see them as a necessity but a LUXURY!!!
HOWEVER CONDOMS, LUBRICANTS, SUNSCREEN AND NICOTINE PATCHES ARE ALL TAX-FREE BECAUSE THEY ARE CLASSED AS IMPORTANT HEALTH GOODS!!!!!!
So far the partition to stop taxing periods has gotten 64 571 signatures of the 75 000 needed!
If you are Australian and wish to participate please sign the partition below:
However if you aren’t Australian could you please do us the favour of forwarding this so your Australian followers can participate! Every signature counts!!
