Yet, There is a Taboo When it Comes to Menstruation.
It is the time throw caution to the wind. It is the time not murmur about menstruation anymore! Every woman till the age of 45 bleeds every month, then why shy or feel ashamed.
They said it loudly and clearly, to be free of the shame.
Maasika Mahotsav was a one-of-a-kind celebration organised by Muskurahat Foundation in collaboration with Period of Sharing and The Rotaract Club of KC College. Shreya Jain and Himanshu Goenka were leading the campaign. The Main motive of this event was to rejoice the periods, Be proud to be a woman.
There were 100 students supporting the initiative all between the age group of 17-20.
Chalk Art– It was a creative way to display art on the pavement of Marine drive by drawing Sanitary pad outline having Slogans and Quotes.
Back-a-Thon– A rally where we walked backwards by holding posters. The message was to push back the taboos of menstruation from the society. Student’s were chanting slogan “Be Loud, be proud, Let periods be known to the crowd”
Donation and Pledge campaign– We asked the youth and the students to take a pledge that they will talk about menstruation openly and no more consider it as impure.
All the students were wearing white Tshirts, Kurta with Red Band tied on the arm.
The spectators and the police officials also supported us with the campaign. This initiative is much needed as youth is supporting this cause, we all should change our mentality towards menstruation. It is a natural process so why one should feel shame? everyone must think about it and become aware its pros as well.
