Ladies ! We Need to Talk !!
A very Warm Welcome to My Blog. Before I start, Today I Want to Ask one Question To all of you – Have you ever been ashamed of yourself just becoz You are not allowed to touch anyone as you are in your Periods or Are you still not comfortable buying a Sanitary pad from the local medical shop? And All those growing years of your life you have just learnt to be silent about your periods and to not discuss about it Publicly …
I know somewhere we all must have gone or are going through this issue but Hey just a second … all these years did we question any day to ourselves – Why Menstruation is A Taboo? Why We Don’t Talk or Discuss about it Openly. No we haven’t, For the unnecessary stigma attached to menstruation.
To my surprise I Recently Came to know that there are Millions of Women and Girls in the World who are totally unaware of the Menstruation Health Condition n Hygiene Process. The Reason is because there is no one to guide them or talk about it.
Studies Revealed –
“ A really High percentage of Women Didn’t know anything about Menstruation before their First period, So they were In a state of Horror & Shock and assumed that they were Dying, just because they were bleeding “
Even today mother’s don’t talk about periods with their daughters, they don’t even know how to talk about it n they feel ashamed & embarrassed talking about it. From Religion to Religion there are Separate Rules & Obligation about periods – Somewhere if a girl is in her periods she is not allowed to touch pickle or she needs to sleep alone n wash her utensil and clothes seperately and is not allowed to touch anyone, just because she is not pure, Is this Right?
Today I believe we all should stand united and spread awareness. So, here I have listed few necessary steps which if taken will be really helpful.
1) Educating both Boys and Girls at an early age inside School about periods will be really helpful for them to understand.
2) There should be no tax Attached to Buying Sanitary pads.
3) Easy and Affordable Access for these product should be available to all the women in the country.
4) Periods is not a Disease, it’s Natural.
5) Maintenance of Cleanliness and the Importanance of Hygiene Factor should be taught to Girls.
6) The last but the most important start talking about it, we should ban the taboo attached to menstrual Cycle.
This World Menstrual Hygiene Day (May 28), our endeavor is to break the taboo that engulfs this natural phenomenon which is the basis of very existence of human life on earth.
