Why do you girls just speak about periods so openly?
Do you want me to pack the pads in a double bag?
You should not step into a temple when you are on your periods!!
The kitchen is also a no-entry area.
Eating pickles while you are on periods, no no, not a good idea!!
You are so unholy, why? Because you are on your periods!!
And many more sentences like this are showered upon girls when they are on their periods every month!! At some point in time, I am pretty much sure that every girl in the country must have gone through this humiliation. Periods are the most disturbing topic that is talked about globally and women in spite of shouting for respect, are not able to break the taboo.
But the question that arises here is that Is it worth it?
No, especially in this world where people are qualified and educated, Periods should not be a stereotype or a taboo anymore. Further, It should in fact be a more consulted and most recognition made topic, so that no one could ever make a joke on a girl again who is going through those difficult 5 days of the month.
Besides, when most of the guys in the country are still commenting on girls and there are still some girls who hesitate to stand and fight against this behaviour, Aditi Gupta has done a magnificent job being a co-founder of an organization named Menstrupedia.
What Is Menstrupedia?
Menstrupedia is an organization that is completely dedicated to bringing awareness in society about all the myths and truths about periods. This firm not only empowers women but also notifies them about various concerns that they are facing while on periods or because of which they are getting late periods. It helps women to stay healthy and active during their periods.
Additionally, the website of this organization holds distinctive informative blogs. Some of its blogs include topics like - Period and Popular Culture, Creating Menstrual awareness through a CSR Activity, they have also published a blog involving comic illustrations that can give knowledge about periods, Why be silent about something so loud as red? and many other blogs. Also, through Menstrupedia, Aditi Gupta is aiding men in purifying their thoughts about the word period, or about the girls going through the pain every month.
