Scotland to approve free sanitary products for all women

The Scottish parliament on Tuesday is due to approve plans to make sanitary products freely available to all women - the first nation in the world ...

The legislation would make products such as tampons and sanitary pads free for all women in Scotland, available at designated public places such as community centres, youth clubs and pharmacies.The plan is expected to pass its first vote in the devolved Scottish parliament on Tuesday.

"We are changing the culture and it's really exciting that other countries right around the world are watching very closely to see what we do," she said.A consultation document proposed modelling the scheme on the card-based system for free condoms, where users register for a free card or voucher to exchange for the products.

The government announced it would drop the tax in 2016, but this has not happened yet, the issue having been pushed to the sidelines during the Brexit process.
