India has been a country that sees menstruation as a taboo for a long time. Even though India is developing rapidly, only less than 20% of women who menstruate wear pads in India. Many girls are removed from schools and even married off when they get their periods. Despite being from the city, I myself have been the victim of ‘period-shaming’. Many people in rural areas see menstruation as ‘impure’ and ‘dangerous’. As a result, many rural women don’t have access to clean sanitary pads. This can lead to serious health problems such as Urinary Tract Infections (UTI), Yeast infections, and even cervical cancer. This issue is growing day by day and it is in desperate need of the spotlight. I felt extremely happy and proud when I heard about the Sukhad project and immediately wanted to be a part of it, that is why I chose this specific topic.
Providing sanitary pads, educating them on proper menstrual hygiene, and raising awareness that 'periods' and discussing them is not a taboo topic, but rather a normal method.
