Periods matter. Why we should talk about them.

Published on 16.04.2019 at 13:53

Thanks to the much-needed noise around period poverty in recent years, we are increasingly aware of the fact that, for many women, sanitary products aren't readily available. They are expensive, and being unable to afford them is the source of shame and stress for many women and girls.

 

Though, millions of women and girls around the world use other methods of managing their menstrual cycles as they are unable to afford sanitary products, they are in dire need of empowerment in menstrual health for environmental, hygienic and disposal reasons.

 

Recent studies have showcased the myriad surprising and inventive ways in which women and girls manage their periods, by fashioning their own sanitary pads and menstruation skirts from unexpected materials. Though those might not be the women's ideal solutions, they do the job; while many are battling the stigma that continues to surround periods and menstruation.

 

We are advocating for period empowerment to ensure that women are not excluded from societies or discriminated against as a result of a natural biological process. They thus should not have to worry about where they might go, how they might manage their periods, or whether the appropriate facilities including running water and adequate disposal will be available and accessible.
