In addition to the right to a three-day absence from work, the text provides for other measures to improve menstrual health. One is the requirement that schools provide sanitary pads for girls. If passed, the law would include the distribution of tampons to women in marginalized social circumstances. In addition, these products must have the tax deducted from the sale price in supermarkets.
The same project also provides for the permission to young people of 16 years for abortion without parental consent, and with care in public hospitals. According to the newspaper El País, there is no consensus among the secretaries regarding the final text and changes can still be made. Voting takes place next Tuesday (17).
