Though the world is slowly moving towards removing the social stigma surrounding menstruation, the word ‘period’ still remains a taboo in most societies. In most countries, girls still avoid going to school when they are on their period. In India, 23 million girls drop out of school early annually when they start menstruating and many of them end up facing acute health problems.

Women in rural areas or in poverty-ridden nations still use paper and other harmful materials such as dried leaves, ash and plastic as a substitute for sanitary pads. Globally, more than half of women are currently of reproductive age—and menstruation is a monthly reality. Yet all around the world, many women lack access to menstrual hygiene products or sanitation facilities, either due to limited availability or excessive cost.
