Q. How does abject poverty in New Zealand entitle John Key to knighthood?

NZ’s homeless women rely on rags while teenage girls use gym socks as sanitary pads

“Female sanitary products are not a luxury, but for young Kiwi women on tight budgets they’re an expense that’s hard to afford,” says Manurewa MP and Labour Youth Affairs spokesperson Louisa Wall.

“A lack of sanitary products has been identified as an obstacle to regular school attendance,” says Wall. “Some girls stay home when it’s their period because they cannot afford sanitary products. Others resort to makeshift and unhygienic measures such as recycling used pads or improvising pads from old clothes, rags, newspapers and other materials—putting them at risk of infection and sickness.”

“This is not only a problem for high school students, but also for university students who typically don’t have much money. “Some university students can’t afford to take public transport or have to skip meals when it’s their period so they have money to buy pads and tampons.”
