Sanitary products such as menstrual products are taxed as luxury items in most parts of the United States, and in many countries all across the world, limited access to period products limits women’s opportunities. The gender wage gap still exists in nearly every country and causes women to be paid less than men for doing the same job. For example, In 2018, the estimated global gender pay gap was 22%, with women earning around 78% of what men are paid (source. ILO, 2018). Furthermore, many countries have strict restrictions on abortions, this causes many women to have to go through pregnancies that they don’t want. In many places around the world, it is legal to discriminate against women and on the basis of sex and/or gender identity. F Moreover, Women spend at least twice as much time as men on domestic work, and when all work – (paid and unpaid) – is considered, women work longer hours than men (source. The World’s Women, 2015).In addition, In 2018, the estimated global gender pay gap was 22%, with women earning around 78% of what men are paid (source. ILO, 2018).
Projects, What we are doing:
Our plan includes Educating the public and spreading awareness through information and examples presented during public outreach webinars.. In addition, we will be creating Care packages and raising money as well as fundraising for women's shelters while distributing sanitary supplies such as menstrual products to combat the lack of supplies needed for women's health care.
