Although many women menstruate for most of their adult lives, periods are still taboo. This stigma is just one of the many challenges local women and girls face when accessing tampons and pads in places like schools and prisons. But some jurisdictions are considering ways to make them more attainable. This year, D.C. made moves to end the sales tax on period products –an exemption Maryland has had since the 1980s.
