Celebrating ‘VAT Victory’ for Period Pants Campaigners

Monica has reacted to the UK Government’s move to abolish the tax on reusable period pants.

This comes after Monica  wrote to Rishi Sunak as Chancellor of the Exchequer multiple times in 2021 requesting an exemption on all menstrual supplies from VAT.

She comments,

“This is a huge milestone for the menstrual justice movement and a step in the right direction from the UK Government.

“Since 2021, I have been meeting with representatives from HM Treasury in an attempt to abolish this absurd policy.

“Period pants are not a luxury; they are an essential item for many and I am over the moon that they are finally being classified as this.

“I look forward to meeting with HM Treasury officials to discuss the details in full.”
