BBC Article: Girls 'too poor' to buy sanitary protection missing school

According to this article on the BBC, some girls are missing school because their families cannot afford to buy them tampons and sanitary towels.  It is an outrage that, in modern Britain, some of our  girls feel unable to go to school because they do not have access to these items.  

Tampons, sanitary towels, pain relief and information should be available in every school to any girl who needs them.  This should be paid for by central government.
