TAMPONS AREN’T A LUXURY

A friend alerted me to this petition this week and I signed it straight away.  I had no idea that tampons attract GST because they are classed as a ‘luxury’ item.  Every one of us knows that sanitary products are a necessity so we should not be paying tax on them, especially as it is a tax only paid by women.  Condoms, lubricants, incontinence pads, and sunscreens are exempt from GST.  There’s something very wrong here, so do take a look and consider sigining this petition which is directed to the the Prime Minister and senior women in Cabinet.
