The tax on menstrual products in Texas is a discriminatory tax on menstruators throughout our state. These products are clearly a medical necessity, and yet, we fail to recognize them as such.
This tax only contributes to period poverty, and harms the health, educational success, and overall well-being of Texas menstruators.
It’s past time to get rid of this discriminatory tax. See our statement in solidarity with the Texas Menstrual Equity Coalition to repeal the period tax next year.
