Australia, on Wednesday, announced plans to scrap a 10% tax on tampons and sanitary products from 2019, bowing to campaigners who have called the levy sexist.

The country’s state and territory treasurers unanimously agreed to remove the goods and services tax (GST) on feminine hygiene products during a meeting with federal Treasurer Josh Frydenberg.

A similar government proposal was rejected in 2015 because states and territories would lose some $22 million in tax revenue.
