This is more evidence of the way Tories obstruct the poor from making any headway in the world – by depriving them of money.

Low-income families in the UK are being pushed so deeply into poverty that they cannot afford to provide the proper sanitary products to their daughters, who then feel forced not to attend school because of the shame to which they would be subjected.

As a result, their education suffers.

It would be worse if they attended school anyway. Their education would still suffer, because they would be shamed brutally by their fellow pupils.

And the experience would probably leave them with emotional scars that will stay with them for the rest of their lives.

These youngsters don’t deserve that – but it’s what they’re suffering, because of sick-minded policies dreamed up by sick-minded Tory ministers and enacted by sick-minded civil servants.

We should all put a stop to it.

Or perhaps you think it’s not your problem, just because it doesn’t directly affect you? That’s a sick-minded attitude too.

Girls are missing school because they can’t afford sanitary products.

Girls from low-income families in the UK are … having to play truant because they can’t afford pads and tampons.

Freedom4Girls is a campaign that sends sanitary products to women and girls in countries like Kenya. And they’ve revealed they’re now doing the same for a school in Leeds.
