A female MP stood up in Parliament and announced she was having a period and had spent £25 already for that period ! Activists say women spend up to £500 per year ! This is part of a campaign to highlight women who cannot afford period products and miss school because of it. There is an advert where girls saying they miss out on projects and lessons and will blight their future prospects.
Well let us look at this claim. A brief look at the cost of tampons reveals they cost £5 for 32, special deals further reduce the cost. So this MP has used 160 tampons for that period and 3200 for the year !
What are they, gold plated. I know other products are used for hygiene, but £500 per year ?
I am aware this is just part of the pink tax protest, but is this over exagerated ?
Let the women take over, and yes, there are products other than tampons.
