No (period) We are not ovary-acting. Young women and girls face a monthly struggle that they did not ask for. Feminine hygiene products are a NECESESSITY, yet NY state taxes them as a LUXURY. Feminine hygiene products are expensive as it is, but the tax makes it even worse. 1 in 10 young women can't afford to buy pads and tampons, resulting in unhealthy solutions to dealing with your period. Some women have to resort to using socks, tissues, and toilet paper. In addition, feminine hygiene products are of the most requested items at homeless shelters, and even the organizations can not supply the high demand. In fact, women in California spend on average 20 million dollars on feminine hygiene products annually. These products are vital to women and girls and it is essential to make them exempt from NY sales tax.
