Last week, Rep Jay Lawrence complained about having to👂to testimony about "pads & tampons & the problems of periods" for incarcerated women. This week, Rep TJ Shope refuses to give #HB2222 a hearing. Now what? Now, we make our voices heard. #LetItFlow THREAD
So, what's HB2222 all about? Currently, incarcerated women in AZ get 12 free pads each month. They must ask an officer if they need more. If they want tampons, they must buy them. To afford to purchase a box of tampons, a woman has to work up to 27 hours at $.15 per hour. /2
However, if blood stains a prisoner's pants, she is given a ticket for being out of dress code, which could result in her losing the ability to purchase store items, such as tampons and pads. /3
