Pay Back the Tampon Tax to Women’s Charities

In 2015, the money collected from VAT on period products known as the Tampon Tax was pledged for women’s health and support charities.

Most of the money has instead been awarded to other charities that are not focused on women’s health and support and local women’s charities are missing out on money which was pledged for them.

Our open letter below to the Department for Culture, Media and Sport, in which more than 100 women, including academics and representatives of women’s charities, have urged the government to ringfence money raised from the unpopular levy to be donated to organisations dedicated to women, can be seen using the link below.
