Historically, access to feminine products has been difficult for various reasons. One of those reasons is the cost of these overpriced essential products.
Known as "the pink tax," it's a distinctly gendered levy that is placed on items that women specifically tend to buy, like maxi pads, tampons, women's razors, and more.
Now, Scotland is the first country in the world to step up and bridge the gap, by making feminine products free in public facilities.
Scottish Parliament unanimously voted in favor of this new provision on Nov. 24.
