UKIP has been outlining policies to appeal to women voters. Along with committing to current maternity rights and cutting the cost of childcare, UKIP would like to see VAT - currently 5% - removed from sanitary products. UKIP's head of policy Suzanne Evans told a press conference: "You might grin at this one but it's something that I feel very strongly about." She blamed the European Union for classifying sanitary products as non-essential luxury item, adding: "This shows not only how ridiculous EU legislation is, but how very wrong it is that we've given our tax sovereignty over to a bunch of faceless - and mostly male - EU Commissioners who simply don't understand real life, let alone real life for women.”
