Scotland on Monday became the first country in the world to make sanitary pads and tampons completely free.
The appointment of a man to promote now free access to tampons and pads in Scotland has drawn widespread criticism. Starting Monday, these must-have products provided free Thanks to a law against menstrual poverty, passed in November 2020, by local authorities and Scottish schools. According to Scottish officials, this is a first in the world, and the initiative has been widely welcomed.
But in Dundee, north of Edinburgh, it was a man who was chosen to advance the law as the first ‘rule of dignity officer’ appointed for two years. Jason Grant, a former muscle-bound personal trainer, is responsible for promoting the new law in schools, colleges and universities and ensuring that it is funded appropriately. It should also encourage discussion about menstruation and menopause.
“This is totally ridiculous,” former tennis player Martina Navratilova said on Twitter. “Have we ever tried to teach men how to shave or take care of them? Prostate , this is absurd”.
Scottish newspaper columnist Susan Dalgety tweeted, “I can’t fathom how anyone thought it was a good idea to name a boy.”
