Support for AZ Menstrual Equity Bill HB 2222

This petition made change with 203 supporters!


Sign this petition to show your support towards AZ House Bill 2222. 

We feel that women undeniably deserve the right to access sanitary napkins as necessary during their menustral cycles. Some mean men at the Arizona state level seem to think 12 a month for a state incarcerated woman is enough. Well we don't think that's a decision for anybody at the state level but a decision for the woman herself, and maybe her medical doctor.

Sign this petition if you agree, and we will present it the day it goes to the house floor! We must be the voice of the women who have none!

�How was this one even on the books? Crazy! Giving women a sanitary pad limit? AZ law system is so unethical!

� I don't care what the women are in prison for, I don't believe it is appropriate, hygienic,or humane to have a limited amount of sanitary napkins available during a monthly cycle. Seriously????

��‍♀️Is this not a Women's Right issue? And why are men questioning this? I say get rid of this bloody law quickly! ❣️Don't you agree??? YES! Of course you do!
