The Value-Added Tax (VAT) rate for tampons in China is 13%, which is the same as the cigarette tax. The abolition of the “Tampon Tax” has been succeeded in several countries, and this has proved that canceling the “Tampon Tax” is possible for the government to implement. This paper explores the reason why China should abolish the “Tampon Tax” by conducting a questionnaire and analyzing secondary sources. Results show that it is necessary to abolish the “Tampon Tax” in China, not only because of the gender inequality in China but also because fewer people can afford menstruation products that are not harmful to female health.
