Menstruation is a natural monthly flow of blood from women and it’s important for women to have access to affordable sanitary pads for their well-being and hygiene. The high taxes on sanitary pads creates challenges, especially for girls’ education and overall well-being. We have the right to know what our leaders are doing to address this issue and ensure that every woman can afford a sanitary pad without sacrificing education or resorting to risky alternatives. It’s time for change, and we need answers.
The demonstration led by Ama Pratt and the group of strong women was fighting for an important cause. It’s disappointing that months have passed and no action has been taken to address this issue. It affects so many girls and women who have to make difficult choices just to afford sanitary pads. Not being able to afford a healthy meal is already a problem for many people, and now the high price of pads is making the situation even worse.
The speech in Parliament by the Speaker, His Honour Alban Kingsford Sumana Bagbin, calling the passing of the law ‘cruelty,’ gave hope to many women. However, it’s disheartening that nothing has been done about it so far. It seems like the demonstration hasn’t had the desired impact on our leaders. The situation is becoming more alarming as women are risking their futures to afford sanitary pads, which are a necessities. We definitely need answers from our leaders on what they are doing to improve the situation. It’s our right to demand change and ensure that everyone has access to affordable menstrual products. Let’s keep fighting for #Flow Is A Necessity Not A Luxury
