The cost of sanitary products are just too much for some girls and their families, and it’s leading to missing school and it’s putting their health at risk.”
“It’s absolutely despicable in the 21st century that girls are being forced to comprise their education simply because an absolute necessity is unavailable and not affordable.”

I do not believe this of modern Britain. Sorry, I simply do not.
