Don’t Tax My Femininity Campaign Gains Major Success

Don’t tax my femininity!—That is the moniker given to the triumphant campaign that led to the end of taxation of women’s sanitary products in Belize. This initiative was kick-started by Belizean humanitarian Seidi Quetzal, who embarked on this journey in January. The twenty-eight-year-old said that after conducting a community survey, she discovered that a lot of women who have reached childbearing age struggle to afford these necessary products. She was able to get the government onboard with her cause, and beginning April 1, the tax on these products will go from about 35 percent to zero.
