After reporting on the Tory economic persecution of girls that means many are missing school due to shame at being unable to afford sanitary products, This Site could hardly ignore a petition to put the issue right.

Children in the UK routinely miss school because they are unable to afford sanitary products, with some being absent for a week every month, as recently reported by the BBC. This will have an enormous effect on their education and their future job prospects.

A bill is about to go through the Scottish Parliament to make it a requirement for Scottish schools to provide free pads and tampons. We are calling on Theresa May and the UK Parliament to ensure this is the case UK wide.
