It is fucking madness that women have to pay for these like anywhere
May be a touch controversial, but they should have to pay for them for the same reasons you have to pay for toilet paper.
It is obscene that it is taxed though (at the 5%, the minimum it can be under EU law). Cakes are VAT exempt. (Not razors though, that's a myth and they are subject to 20% vat).
It's an area with some blind spots for people. Our government are utterly tied to the EU regulations on this and we have to tax them (until the EU changes it's common market rules or we leave).
What Everton are doing here, however, is brilliant.
