There is #NoShame in menstruation Join us in ending the stigma around periods

Globally, 28th May is observed as Menstrual Hygiene Day to call attention to and normalise menstruation. This year organisations, governments, stakeholders, media and celebrities are getting behind one message that there is #NoShame in menstruation.

Even today, girls and women continue to face significant challenges in managing their periods in a safe and hygienic manner because of low levels of awareness about menstruation and menstrual hygiene, lack of access to safe products, and lack of access to water, sanitation and hygiene services. Underlying this are widely held beliefs that consider menstruation to be polluting and menstruating girls and women as impure.
