A bill that would provide unlimited menstrual supplies to incarcerated women in Arizona prisons has stalled in the House of Representatives, so women are protesting by mailing pads and tampons to the Capitol.

How come incarcerated women don't already get menstrual supplies? What are they expecting them to use, toilet paper?

This isn't a choice, and I don't care what they do with them. Female prisons should have access to sanitary products

Women in prison don’t already have unlimited menstrual supplies? That seems like it should be as basic as providing soap or clothes.

They can't mail the pads and tampons to the prisoners instead?

I'm completely on board with protesting this, but I don't know if spending the time and money to mail pads and tampons to the Capitol is the best way of protesting. Those products could be donated to the prisons instead (if prisons even accept donations - I don't know if that's a thing). Edit: It seems like several people have suggested donating.

Does seem a waste... unless they’re used. Now that’s a dirty protest!
