Girls will now be able to access the sanitary items free of charge in school toilets.
The initiative was promised by the Andrews government in May last year, as a way to reduce the stigma and embarrassment around periods (especially in primary schools) and reduce costs in homes.
“While getting your period is a normal part of life, for some young girls it can be a source of anxiety or embarrassment," Minister for Women and Youth, Gabrielle William said in a statement.
Just like toilet paper or soap, sanitary products are a basic human right for menstruating females, so we say it's about bloody time!
Advocacy groups all over the country are calling for the initiative to be rolled out nationwide, so hopefully it's not long before we see this in school bathrooms all over Australia.
