Tampon Tax To Go

The 10% tax on tampons and other sanitary products is set to go on the 1st of January 2019 with state and territory treasurers meeting this morning and unanimously agreeing to axe the tax. The decision comes after a long campaign to ditch the tax which saw items like tampons and pads being taxed while other products such as condoms and Viagra were exempt. One organisation at the forefront of the ‘axe the tax’ campaign was Share the Dignity. We spoke to their founder and managing director, Rochelle Courtenay about this latest decision and what it means for women around Australia.
