    The myths and taboos many Indian women face today regarding their period didn’t originally come from a place of harm. When people had to work harder in the past, women’s lack of participation in the community was not intended to ostracize them but give them an opportunity to rest from their duties. Over time and due to the influence of colonization and patriarchal ideas, these ideas started to become harmful to the women they were meant to protect. Would you like to know more about this topic?
