Many countries’ taboos surrounding menstruation have an impact on girls’ and women’s emotional well-being, mindset, lifestyle, and, most importantly, health. When girls in many less developed countries start menstruation. They drop out of school in large numbers. Over 23% of Indian ladies fall into this category. In addition, female teachers face challenges due to their monthly menstrual cycle. As a result, the lack of suitable menstruation protection options and/or clean, safe, and private sanitary facilities for female teachers and girls, as well as gender-unfriendly school culture and infrastructure, jeopardize the right to privacy.
There are additional issues of health. And cleanliness to consider when it comes to girls and menstruation. In India, almost 77 percent of menstruation girls. In addition, 88 percent of Indian women use ashes. Newspapers, dried leaves, and husk sand to assist absorption.
