Scotland Becomes 1st Country To Make Period Products Free



Activists rally outside the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh in February in support of legislation for free period products. Scotland will make these products free to all who need them after lawmakers unanimously passed a bill that will require tampons and pads to be available in public places.

“A proud day for Scotland and a signal to the world that free universal access to period products can be achieved,” said Monica Lennon, who championed the bill in the Scottish Parliament.
