On this day, make sure that you get involved in the conversation on social media by using the hashtag #mensturalhygieneday!


Menstrual hygiene day is meant to serve as a platform to bring together individuals, organizations, social businesses and the media to create a united and strong voice for women and girls around the world, helping to break the silence about menstrual hygiene management.

Menstruation is a natural process in which blood which was created by the body to cushion an egg is flushed from the body if the owner of the said egg does not become pregnant. It is a normal action which millions of women across the world experience, and this day seeks to remove any taboo associated with it.
