The Pink Tax

WHEREAS.... Women are charged more for everyday objects, such as razors, deodorant, and even bike helmets.

WHEREAS.... Tampons and pads are charged a sales tax because they’re considered ‘luxury items’.

WHEREAS…. There were 5 Toxic Shock Syndrome cases as of December 5th 2015, because tampons were not changed out often enough, because tampons were too expensive to purchase more. WHEREAS….

Toxic Shock Syndrome is a life- threatening disease, which can be fatal around 50% of the time it occurs, being every 3-6 out of 100,000 women.

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED....

1. Simply remove the sales tax from one-use pads and tampons.

2. Raise the price a bit on reusable menstrual cups, pads, and 'period underwear', to keep the revenue the same.
