Information about legislation is notoriously difficult to read and understand. We wanted to create a visual representation of state-by-state legislation on topics pertinent to gender equality. We chose to highlight the taxation of menstrual hygiene products — basic hygiene necessities for many woman — in many states which exempt products like rogaine and viagra as “medical necessities.” This idea could be applied to a variety of topics and by visualization the status of legislation in different states we hope to empower citizens and give a tool to activists. We used HTML in Chrome's Glitch to put together an interactive map that visually shows and links to information on each state's legislation.
