Breaking Cultural Taboos and Igniting Social Change

Women around the world still face stigma and exclusion due to the lack of acceptance of menstruation as a natural process. To combat these challenges and strive for a more equitable and just society, it becomes crucial to create knowledge and awareness regarding menstrual hygiene practices while breaking the taboos that surround menstruation.

In an inspiring effort to fulfill this year’s Menstrual Hygiene Day theme of “Making menstruation a normal fact of life by 2030,” All India Welfare Society partnered with Restless Development to organize an impactful event at the University of Rajasthan. The main purpose was to dismantle the taboos surrounding menstrual health and enlighten students about the prevailing stigma and social exclusion faced by women.
