Period poverty: Scottish parliament votes to make pads and tampons free

Things could soon be very different in Scotland, where its parliament has voted to make sanitary products like tampons and pads free for women across a number of specific public places like community centres, pharmacies and youth clubs, via a bill proposed by Labour’s Monica Lennon.

The move would cost 24.1 million pounds, following the first stage passage of The Period Productions (Free Provision) Scotland Bill, which will now move onto the second stage where amendments are expected to be proposed.
