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.

The Greens are calling on Labor and the Coalition to get on board and support a Greens bill in parliament to end this unfair and discriminatory tax.

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

The Greens sought to fix this issue last year by moving amendments to a GST bill before the Senate, but Labor and the Coalition voted it down. If they are serious about fixing this issue they should support our bill to get the job done.

Let’s scrap the tax.
