Did you know all but five U.S. states have a luxury tax on feminine hygiene products — tampons, pads, etc.?
On the above video’s YouTube page are links to various nations’ petitions to remove the tax, but I don’t see one for the U.S. where we’ll need to eliminate the tax state by state.
Here’s a map of all the states that tax feminine hygiene products as “non-essential.” Shall we go bleed all over the chairs in the waiting rooms at their state capitols?

I’m always excited to find another reason that NJ is a decent place! (Also: paid maternity leave! Only 6 weeks, and not a lot of money, but that’s still great by US standards!)
Maggie, you can start one for California on Moveon.org.
