Feminist Prisoners Sent Arizona Representative Maxi-Pads in the Mail as Protest

Some stories are just a little bit on the "gross" side, and the tale feminist advocates across the nation in defense of women inmates an Arizona prison sending their elected officials maxi-pads and tampons in the form of a protest fits that bill perfectly.

Female inmates who were serving prison sentences inside the state of Arizona were furious after the Arizona Department of Corrections limited their usage of female sanitary napkins (maxi-pads) to only 12 per inmate per month, and they began to cause a ruckus.

Some of the women attempted to explain to prison staff that this would mean they'd have to wear at maximum two blood-soaked maxi-pads throughout the remainder of their day, whereas many women have to change them as often as three to five times per day.

If they needed more than the twelve pads issued to them, they had to contact corrections staff and plead with them in order to receive more. This was causing many of the females to have to work various inmate jobs inside the prison system while literally being stuck in a bloody mess.

State Representative Athena Salman (D-Tempe) had introduced a bill that would have allowed the female inmates to receive more of the essential sanitary pads per, and the bill went through the male-dominated House Military, Veterans and Regulatory Affairs Committee without hesitation.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">WATCH: <a href="">@AthenaSalman</a> gives an update on her bill <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#HB2222</a>. Your voice will move this legislation forward. <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#AZLeg</a> <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; Arizona House Democrats (@AZHouseDems) <a href="">February 12, 2018</a></blockquote>

"We know that this bill really struck a nerve.We need to make this commitment to our female prisoners in our prison system who deserve just basic dignity and respect," Salman said.

"The agency is evaluating revisions to current policy relative to the quality and minimum quantity of feminine hygiene products provided free of charge to all of its female inmates. We are confident that concerns can be appropriately addressed administratively rather than through statute," said the Arizona Department of Corrections in response.

State Representative TJ Shope (R-Florence) went upon the suggestions of the Arizona Department of Corrections, which has one state prison for women, the Arizona State Prison Complex-Perryville in Goodyear, which houses about 4,000 women, and decided to kill the bill inside of the Arizona House Rules Committee, according to<a href=""> AZ Central</a>.

A large part of this desire was to slash the budget of the female prison system in Arizona, but as a result, feminists devised a means of ensuring the women wouldn't be ignored.

This caused massive amounts of anger from within the female prison system, and the women developed a plan to get even, according to the<a href=""> Phoenix New Times</a>.

Soon thereafter, feminist protesters from around the country began sending Representative Shope envelopes filled with cash, to assist in the purchase of sanitary napkins for the female inmates and used maxi-pads in the Mail.

The effort to ensure the Arizona Democratic House Bill 2222, which would ensure unlimited products for females within the prison system, had apparently taken on a national role in a matter of days.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">.<a href="">@TJShopeforAZ</a>, please give <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#HB2222</a> a hearing ASAP. It&#39;s inhumane to deny women access to tampons and pads! In the meantime, I&#39;m mailing you a few thing to pass along to the AZ Dept of Corrections <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#LetItFlow</a> <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; Emily Kirkland (@ERKirkland) <a href="">February 12, 2018</a></blockquote>

<script async src="" charset="utf-8"></script>

Once Shope began receiving the endless, and somewhat disturbing letters in the mail, the Arizona Department of Corrections immediately reversed their policy, and<a href=""> issued a public statement</a>.

<blockquote>The Arizona Department of Corrections appreciates and values the comments and feedback it has received in recent days regarding sanitary napkin products provided to female inmates. Department personnel have accordingly reviewed the department's current policy and practice.</blockquote>

<blockquote>As a result of this review, the department will continue to provide sanitary napkins free of charge to all of its female inmates, regardless of need.</blockquote>

<blockquote>Effective immediately, the department will increase the minimum baseline quantity that inmates receive each month, from 12 to 36.</blockquote>

<blockquote>As is the current practice, an inmate may request and, without charge, receive additional pads, if necessary. Additional product options will continue to be available through the inmate store.</blockquote>

<blockquote>We believe this change addresses and resolves, in an appropriate and timely fashion, the concerns raised in the last week.</blockquote>

Most individuals reading this story were likely grossed out, but in the end, the goal of these efforts was for a cause related to hygienic protection for not just the inmates but the corrections officers and employees of the Department of Corrections.

Apparently, this means of sending a message worked, although it's not exactly what you'd consider a "normal means" of protest.

There’s nothing more repulsive than a female inmate. The only thing that eminates from them are lies, crocodile tears, and the ability to get support from sjw cunts.
