An adolescent's life drastically changes the day they start menstruating.

Across urban and rural India, menstruation is believed to be ‘impure’. Overwhelming stigma, taboos and a lack of knowledge prevents girls from:

Seeking support & healthcare
Participating in school 

Making informed choices about their bodies

Accessing equal opportunities

Roohi was in seventh grade when her sanitary pad leaked during class, staining her uniform with blood. Already mortified, Roohi's teacher added to her shame by making her stand while she lectured her about the taboos she should be following as she was 'dirty'.

Roohi started to skip 8-10 days of school during her period every month.

Pragna (Period Fellow 2018-19) visited Roohi's school to facilitate behaviour change sessions. She heard about the incident and gently addressed Roohi's fears, breaking down taboos and sharing how Roohi can manage her period to avoid staining. Roohi now participates fully in school while menstruating without fear or stigma.
