28 May International Menstrual Hygiene Day
28 May is International Menstrual Hygiene Day , the theme for this year is #menstruationmatters. This topic still remains a taboo in most cultures and yet menstruation affects the lives of women and girls every month the world over.UNESCO estimates that 1 in 10 African adolescent girls stay out of school during their menstruation due to lack of proper sanitary products and/or sanitation at aschool. In most countries sanitary products are considered luxury products and are therefore taxed. How do we help empower women when such barriers still exist? Lets break the silence, join in the conversation.
