🌍 Urgent Call for Change: Ending Menstrual Stigma and Period Poverty


The tragic loss of a young life reminds us of the ongoing struggle against the harmful practice of chhaupadi, where women are banished during their menstruation. We must rally for more focus, political will, and financial support to de-stigmatize menstruation and eliminate period poverty.

Chhaupadi is based on outdated beliefs that women and girls are unclean during menstruation, leading to their isolation in "period huts."

Let's remember Anita Chand and other victims and join the call for change. We must support NGOs, local initiatives, and women's advocacy groups working tirelessly to combat this injustice.

Together, we can make a difference. Let's raise awareness, challenge the norms, and demand action from governments and communities. No woman should suffer due to menstrual stigma or period poverty. It's time for change, and we're committed to being part of it.

Your support matters! By sharing this post, you're joining us in raising awareness about the ongoing battle against period poverty. Together, we can make a difference. If you'd like to take a direct step, consider donating a period pad to women in need through this link:
