What? Your tampons are a ‘luxury good’ ladies.

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.

A pile of tampons

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.

 

Abi.
