4 Reasons To Celebrate Menstrual Hygiene Week
We’re celebrating Menstrual Hygiene all week, by looking back on the progress we have made for period equity. There really is a true need to celebrate our power and our story. Women experience so much, especially with their reproductive health. So we are making it our business to shine a spotlight on things.
Here are 5 reasons you should totally make a big deal about Menstrual Hygiene Week:
- While the entire last week of the month is used for an observation of menstrual health, the day specifically is May 28 and here’s why: the founder of the Menstrual Hygiene Day shares that the average interval of a menstrual cycle is 28 days. On average, women and girls menstruate for 5 days per month. Hence 28-5, or the 28th of May was chosen to mark this day.
- Because your body deserves the best and women made sure that was the case: A bill was passed that would require disclosure of ingredients in period products.
- Poor menstrual hygiene caused by a lack of education on the issue, persisting taboos and stigma, limited access to hygienic menstrual products and poor sanitation infrastructure undermines the educational opportunities, health and overall social status of women and girls around the world.
- In order to ensure a world without period stigma and period poverty, every woman and girl needs to be empowered to manage her menstruation safely, hygienically, with confidence and without shame.
All of this was possible because YOU RAISED YOUR VOICES! When we can talk openly about periods, we can convince policy makers and corporations to ensure that menstrual products are safe, affordable and accessible. That’s why it is so encouraging (and so important) to see the conversation on periods and period health move into the mainstream. Because that conversation is MOVING the mainstream. We greatly appreciate the work of women everywhere who by taking control of their bodies are helping to create a healthier world for people everywhere.
