Good work by Del. Mike Mullin and the other 27 Virginia House Dems who signed this letter. As the letter states, “Women should not be subject to limited options for coverage, such as only being allowed to wear a sanitary pad. Not only does this border on sexual harassment and gender discrimination in instances where a visitor is forced to use a facility-provided pad, but it is also a religious rights violation in some cases…We, too, believe there are better ways to prevent drugs from being brought into correctional facilities.” I couldn’t agree more!
