Back in April, Ella or Pookes (the post is uncredited as far as I can see) wrote about Tampon Tax.
Earlier today, the French parliament rejected the chance to reduce VAT on tampons because it would reduce tax income to them by 55m euros.
Shaving foam has a reduced VAT because it’s not a luxury. VAT on tampons aren’t reduced on tax, despite being a necessity ( a luxury good) for women of menstruating age. An outrageous decision.
