Exciting news for anyone interested in tackling period poverty and stigma: the new website periodtax.org is live!

Until now, information on taxes on menstrual products has been scattered across various databases and websites. periodtax.org is a one-stop-shop on the issue that combines reliable, up-to date information on taxes on menstrual products globally with practical capacity building on how to turn this information into effective period tax campaigns.

Among other things, the website includes an interactive map and database of period taxes around the world, an  advocacy guide that provides step-by-step support on campaign strategy and implementation, a report on the economic impact of tax reductions, several easy to understand explanatory videos and a comprehensive set of case studies.

A big “thank you” to RHSC’s Innovation Fund for funding the development of the site.

We hope you enjoy exploring 
periodtax.org!
