Visithra : "Menstruation is a natural human body function but unfortunately periods are still a taboo subject.
So while women suffer in varying degrees of pain, we are told to hide our pads and be embarrassed of periods. That the blood that flows from our uterus is too shameful to be shown in red on sanitary products. Taboos, poverty, inadequate sanitary facilities, very little health education and cultures that shame periods into silence, denies them the basic right for clean, affordable menstrual materials, education and safe spaces. Menstruation is a human rights issue that still lacks adequate support. Your period is not a curse or a thing to hide. It is a symbol of strength and life. It should no longer be a whisper but discussed openly.
We bleed, proudly."
