This August 11, 2014 article on TheGuardian website talks about one journalist’s case for why feminine hygiene items should be free for women.  She points out that the need for these items is often a luxury for women in some places depending on their income and what is available to them.  The journalist points out that women miss work and school, and in some cases end up dropping out of school because of a lack of menstrual care items.
