#Feminism: Adequate menstrual hygiene management is not a luxury. It is a basic need for all women.


🚫 Did you know? An estimated 500 million women lack access to menstrual products and adequate facilities for menstrual hygiene management.


📍Whether it’s because of lack of money to buy pads, tampons or other menstrual products, access to hygienic spaces, or discriminatory cultural norms and practices, women and girls, especially those living in the world’s poorest countries, are deeply impacted by period poverty.


🚨 Lack of access to menstrual hygiene products can have a detrimental impact on women's and girls' physical and mental well-being.


💖 How you can help? Call for:

  • Affordable and tax-free sustainable sanitary products;

  • Wider access to menstrual hygiene management and sanitary facilities;

  • Better workplace policies inclusive of menstruating and menopausal women;

  • Increased access to information and education to help break the silence, stigma, and taboos surrounding menstruation.

💪👩🏾‍🤝‍👩🏽 March is dedicated to women. Let's support one another in pursuing our dreams because we have the right to live the life we choose! We shouldn't let anyone's criticism deter us from doing so!
