A progressive activist group called Period Equity plans to host a protest today (Friday) at Tulane University from 11am-3pm to proclaim their disdain for sales tax of feminine products.
The protest organizers are asking participants to bring receipts from their latest tampon/pads purchase.
Those without a previous receipt can make a purchase at the site of the protest (leading some to suspect this protest may actually just be a front to help sell more feminine products).
Another group called LIFT Louisiana is helping to organize the event.
The organizers also want diapers to be removed from the state sales tax.
Progressives: the only political movement who openly support raising taxes for one group of people while lowering taxes for another. Are feminists great or what?
