Going against trend, there’s some good news coming out of India.

Putting the WhatsApp lynchings to the side, women in India are celebrating, because the merciful Indian Government has decided to abandon their 12% tax on feminine hygiene products.

According to India’s Acting Finance Minister Piyush Goyal, “Sisters and mothers will be happy to hear that sanitary pads have been given a 100% exemption and brought down to a tax rate of zero.”

Yes, sisters and mothers, rejoice! The Indian Government in all of their infinite wisdom and compassion has decided not to steal from you monthly on this one.

Just sayin’.
