Free period products in Scotland – level 2

23-08-2022 07:00

Right now, many products are more expensive, and for some women, they cannot buy period products.

Scotland became the first country to make a law for free period products for women and girls. They can get period products at schools, shopping centers, or other places. Before the new law, poor women could ask food banks for help.

Some women have so little money that they can’t buy these products every month. Sometimes, they use the products longer than is safe or hygienic. For this reason, they can’t do all activities or go to all places.

Difficult words: period (once a month, blood comes from a woman’s body), food bank (a place with food for poor people), hygienic (clean).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
