Film 13 – K’sirs International School India – Menstrual Cycle

Languages: Malayalam, Tamil, Telugo and English

Out of all of the menstruating women and girls in India, less than 20% use sanitary pads. Majority of them use home-made alternatives such as rag, padded cloth, ash or even hay which prove to be extremely unhygienic. The prejudice faced by menstruating individuals due to the prevalent stigma makes them vulnerable to exploitation or reluctance to speak up and normalize the cycle leads to the undermining of the dignity and rights of almost half the world’s population. It’s time for us to break the silence. Initiating local actions can also prove to make a world of difference. So, join our efforts to initiate the conversation. Let’s break menstrual stigma. Period.
