Sanitary products should be free for schoolgirls in Australia. All girls have the right to feel comfortable, and those living in poverty are missing out on this essential item.

By providing sanitary products to schoolgirls, especially those living close to, or below, the poverty line, the government will ensure that there are fewer issues in dealing with women’s health. There will be a reduction in the cases of toxic shock syndrome, caused by improper use of sanitary items, and young women will have a better understanding of how to manage their health.

The dialogue around women’s health will also become more open, and women will receive more timely diagnoses and effective treatment plans for their health issues.
