Dayna Berghan: Why No Tampon Subsidy?

- I have a small conspiracy theory to offer. The state does not recognise the real need for subsidised sanity products, as there is no later burden for the state to pick up. One defence of the state as there are many products available for female sanitary requirements. The counter argument is that some pharmaceuticals are subsidised by the state, why not sanitary items?
