Menstruation (a period) is a major stage of puberty in girls. Most of the girls don’t have a complete understanding about women’s reproductive system and get afraid during the menstrual cycle.
This has always been surrounded by secrecy and myths in many societies.
Culturally in many parts of India, menstruation is still considered to be dirty and Impure . Many girls and women are subject to restrictions in their daily lives due to menstruation. These myths are also impacting girl’s health and increasing hygiene issues. Over 77% Of girls and women in India use an old cloth which is often reused.
Bharat GirlUp is a youth driven organization that comes under the United Nations foundation’s initiative, working for women empowerment and gender equality at large.
