Free Sanitary Pads

This petition is to demonstrate the urgent call for the South African government to prioritize women and girls with regards to allocating National Government Expenditure towards the supply of FREE SANITARY PADS across both rural and urban schools, public toilets, Higher learning institutions as well as corporate working environments nationally. 

It has been noted with deep grave concern that women are experiencing career setbacks as well as missed advancement opportunities (at school and outside school) due to their menstruation cycles either negatively affecting their productivity levels and even the stress caused by expenses of sanitary pads; on a month to month basis. Thus this is a gender parity cause, it is a fight for women to be able to be as competitive as men in the career advancement playing field.
