Menstrual health awareness in a gender lens.

Published on 31.10.2019 at 13:56

In our recent training programme on Pathways to Empowerment in menstrual health awareness, participants highlighted how a lack of menstrual knowledge based research as well as a lack of monitoring or evaluation of few existing menstrual health educational programs show how little we know about menstruation and periods to actually tackle the existing challenges more comprehensively and inclusively. 

 

Further, in most sessions, many questioned how we see and reframe menstruation and periods, by not understanding them from a gender perspective. Menstrual shaming severely inhibits the visualisation of the challenge that various menstruating bodies face, nurturing thus a culture of concealment, stigma and discrimination. Hence, there is a need to find solutions on how to break such an oppressive culture.

 

Currently, there are no any menstrual social research or educational programmes to assess and meet the needs of various menstruating people, especially those who are systematically marginalised because of their gender, sexuality, ability, age and class, which further expose them to violence and dismimination while access menstrual hygiene products that deepens & maintain the status-quo of social injustice. 

 

Thus, it is difficult to facilitate behavioral changes to achieve a period positive attitude while menstruation & periods are seen as something negative, to be ashamed about, and with Menarche, menstruating body climb a step in maturity that seen as not normal, discomfort or painful. The training course created a safe space for participants to learn and commit to an inclusive menstrual health awareness.
