Sacramento, California (AP) — California public schools and universities are required to stock free sanitary napkins in their toilets under new legislation.
The bill, signed by Governor Gavin Newsom on Friday, is based on a 2017 law that requires low-income schools in disadvantaged areas to provide students with free menstrual supplies.
From grades 2022-23, the law will be extended from grades 6 to 12 to include the systems of community colleges, California State University, and the University of California.
The state has also previously abolished taxes on menstrual products that cost women an estimated $ 20 million annually.
