EP 74 - Menstrual Hygiene in Africa
In This Episode:
Yesterday was Menstrual Hygiene Day, and people all over the world joined their voices through social media, to raise awareness and bring period education to all.
However, there is still a group of women who do not have access to the internet and social media. To this day, these women cannot get staple menstrual hygiene products, and even when they are made available, they can't afford it. Some of their religions and cultures also set dreadful rules that stifle these women during their period.
How can we join forces and end period poverty? I believe that someday soon, we can live in a world where no woman or girl is held back because of her period.
