Get behind our push to end this unfair tax on biology.

People in Australia are taxed every time they purchase tampons, pads and other products used for menstruation because they are considered non-essential luxury products.

For too long, successive governments have been happy to let this sexist tax persist. 

The Greens’ bill to axe the tax on menstrual products has passed through the Senate, which means we are a giant step closer to axing the tax. 

Before we can say goodbye to the tampon tax for good, the bill needs to pass through the House of Representatives.

The Senate has sent a strong message to Malcolm Turnbull. Now it’s up to him to show some leadership and finally get this done.

Let’s scrap the tax.
