Genius Idea: Menstruation Equality

Good point.Rep. Grace Meng of New York’s 6th District.Coming off of A Day Without a Woman, Democrat Rep. Grace Meng of New York’s 6th District is pushing for H.R. 972, otherwise known as the Menstrual Equity for All Act.

This bill hinges on five bits of brilliance:

1. Allowing individuals to buy menstrual hygiene products with money they contribute to their flexible spending accounts.

2. Providing a refundable tax credit to low-income individuals who regularly use menstrual hygiene products.

3. Allowing grant funds from the Emergency Food and Shelter Grant Program, which can be used by homeless assistance providers for essential household items to be used for menstrual hygiene products.

4. Requiring each State to provide menstrual hygiene products to female inmates and detainees, at no cost and on demand, as a condition of receiving funds from the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program.Some pigs are more equal than others.

5. Directing the Secretary of Labor to require employers with 100 or more employees to provide menstrual hygiene products to their employees free of charge.

In a sure nod to this bill’s genius, Florida’s Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz is one of this bill’s 21 co-sponsors.

Huzzah?

    A federal lawsuit was files & accused Wells Fargo for illegally denying student loans to young immigrants. There is another option to use cash advance in huntsville, which is very important. One can get service by credit card& charge card issuers. This could be very effective for the immigrants.:):)
