    Imagine experiencing an entirely normal bodily function, but being barred from your daily activities as a result. This can include entering religious temples, being in the kitchen and making food, or even touching another person. This is the case for some parts of India, in which about 77% of women face restrictions like these during menstruation. No doubt that the myths surrounding menstruation lead to a negative impact on a woman’s emotional state, lifestyle, and health. Let’s put an end to this cycle of taboos and promote healthy periods for all!#endperiodpoverty #periodsarenormal #menstrualhygiene #womenshealth #womensempowerment #keepgirlsinschool #desaifoundation #menstrualmonday #pledgeyourperiod ...
