India though on the verge of being the superpower in the near future still lacks the issue of providing basic amenities to its citizens. One of the most disturbing issues in the country, where women have been given the status of goddesses in mythology have been devoid of basic rights even to their own menstrual hygiene and self cleanliness. Poverty, ignorance, superstitions are discouraging factor in use of sanitary napkins and yet we still remain silent on such a huge issue.
According to a report by market research group AC Nielsen,
“Sanitary Protection: Every Woman’s Health Right”, 88% of women in India are driven to use ashes, newspapers, sand husks dried leaves and other hygienic practices during their periods.”
As a result of these unhygienic practices, more than 70% of women suffer from reproductive tract infections, increasing the risk of contracting associated cancers. Inadequate menstrual protection and unhygienic menstrual practices may also lead to infertility.
Therefore, lets break the taboo by joining hands with Amari and bring a change in our society.
