TSR Politics: California public schools and colleges are required to stock their restrooms with free monthly products under a bill signed by Governor Gavin News.
According to the Associated Press, the new law is based on 2017, which requires free monthly products to be provided to students in low-income schools in disadvantaged areas.
The new bill extends legislation to include community colleges and the California State University and the University of California system, starting from the 2022-23 school year in grades 6 through 12. The bill also encourages private schools and colleges to follow suit.
Democratic Assemblywoman Christina Garcia said of her law, “Our biology doesn’t always send an advanced warning when we’re about to start menstruating, which often means we have to stop what we’re doing and deal with a period.” “For example, toilet paper and paper towels are provided to virtually every public [bathroom], Should therefore be a monthly product. ”
California is not alone in this movement. Purdue University in Indiana decided last year to provide free women’s hygiene products in its campus bathrooms.
“California is joining a growing number of states that are making menstrual equality a human rights issue.” “No student should ever lose learning time because of their period, period.”
California has previously repealed a tax on menstrual products that cost women an estimated 20 million a year.
Newsom was a busy week. He has signed many more bills, including legislation, one of which is the illegal use of condoms, which has been praised by many.
She also signed a bill that would provide postnatal care and dowry services to mothers.
