Talking about menstruation necessitates a broader discussion about related subjects like sex, pregnancy, unsafe abortions, HIV, reproductive rights, etc. — knowledge most underprivileged youths lack, but desperately need.
The social status of Menstrual Health Management still finds itself entangled in the midst of taboos, segregation, lack of facilities and affordability, and various other issues which should have been resolved about a decade ago. Most women in the slums lack sufficient resources to manage their periods. With insufficient menstrual solutions, many girls miss a week of school each month, or they drop out for good. Too often, these girls even engage in transactional sex to get money for pads and tampons. The power of a pad helps women to dream beyond.
