And more and more governments are listening and taking action. This website provides an overview of past and present national campaigns and shares key lessons learned from around the world. Our goal is to support ongoing campaigns with learnings and ammunition for advocacy, and to inspire more action to reduce and remove taxes on menstrual products.
