Menstrual cycle is not a luxury!: Conferenze - La Terna Sinistrorsa

Campus Leonardo

Are pads a luxury or a necessity? Is it correct that they are taxed at 22%? Is the Tampon Tax debate just a women's issue? What role could the university have? To these and other questions we will try to answer during a conference, organized in collaboration with Onde Rosa, directly questioning who is carrying out battles such as the reduction of IVA to 10% for sanitary napkins. In addition to the girls of Onde Rosa, will be present the deputy Lia Quartapelle, a lecturer of Polytechnic Equal Opportunities and (perhaps) the former deputy Giuseppe Civati.
