Over the weekend, women across Arizona have been sending tampons and pads to Arizona Republican Representative Thomas Shope. This comes after Shope stalled the passing of Bill 222 to revisit policy details. Bill 222 would give women in prison unlimited access to feminine care products. Currently, only 12 pads are given to inmates each month. The bill was heard by an all-male committee last week. The hashtag #LetItFlow blew up over Twitter as a response to the delay of the passing of the bill. Democratic Representative Athena Salman says, “While this is welcome news, in the future we would like to see this new policy codified in a way that can’t be undone by a new director or governor….We will also remain vigilant to make sure it’s implemented as promised, with no unnecessary barriers to women receiving any products they need.”

Dan Nabaty (11) says, “I think it’s a little weird but it’s making a statement.” The hashtag has been used nationally, with women from other states showing their support for Bill 222. Tyra Hawthorne (11) says, “They shouldn’t put a limit on care products for women.” The fate of Bill 222 still lays in Congress’s hands, but the passing of this bill is likely according to those who support it.
