Are You Taxed For Being A Female?

Period Equity

I’m not the sort of person who pays any attention to “feminine” products. But this had me sit up. Chapstick is exempt from sales tax because it’s regarded as a medical must-have. But tampons? They’re not.

40 states have what’s known as a “tampon tax.” Yet, Viagra, condoms, toilet paper, and many food products go tax free. Period Equity is an organization, which is working with activists to eliminate that tax, state by state—through these witty messages.
