World Bank also said that men are also equally responsible to break the cultural stigma. For millions of girls all around the world, the period is equal to stigma for them. One of the most difficult days in their life is the day when they get their periods. It is not only socially but physically and nutrition wise also difficult for them.

Lack of scientific knowledge, improper nutritional intake, poor accessibility, poor affordability are some of the major factors which makes the time of period much more difficult.

As per the National Family health survey, only 48.5% of women use sanitary napkins in rural areas opposed to 77.5% of women in urban areas. But approximately 23.5% of Indian girls are drop out of schools as soon as they hit their puberty.

Most girls miss school due to pain, fear and other cultural and social barriers. Lack of proper sanitation measures and proper blood absorbents they prefer staying inside their home only. One of the Delhi based NGO conducted a survey in which it was found that 70% of the girls have no knowledge about menstrual hygiene practices.

Thus, on this day we wish and pledge that we will ensure all in our capacity to safeguard women’s menstrual rights so that she could lead a happy and blissful reproductive life.
