The map below has prices of sanitary pads from across Mzansi which amandla.mobi members have submitted. The Pads Price Tracker is being used by amandla.mobi to track whether shops are passing on the 15% VAT free saving on to women.
amandla.mobi campaigned long and hard for an end to the tax on women's periods. Treasury eventually heard us and as of 1st April 2019 sanitary pads are VAT free (zero rated). But we know that corporate greed could undermine our victory, so together, we are tracking prices. If we find shops are not passing on the full 15% saving we will hold them to account.
