Was quite surprised by the condition of women in India. We need to continuously empower women, only then violence against women can be stopped, for this there is a need to do as many awareness programs as possible. Jeevan Jayoti Jan Kalyan Kendra Gomia Direcor

I had always been quite appalled at the state of the women of my home country, India. There have been numerous efforts to fix it but with a country this big and this backwardly rooted in religion its definitely a task. However watching the documentary truly gave me hope for the future of our little girls. It really was beautifully made not to mention how important it is to talk about this and bring this issue into light.

I don't understand why countries across the world still have taxes on menstrual products and the fact that so many girls still use cloth napkins and not pads is such a shame for society It is high time we accept that it is a natural process and the reason for every individuals existence .

Women didn’t ask for periods, but we have them. Women globally deserve free menstrual products or at least proper menstrual products at a reasonable price. We must continue to educate and destigmatize periods.

Everyone who menstruates should have access to the products, support, and education they deserve. No matter who they are, or where they are. Let's remove the stigma associated with menstrual health and hygiene. Every month 1.8 billion people across the world menstruate - let's normalise it.

Access to dignity for a woman is a minimum especially in regards of something so "random" as periods. Knowing that women are judge, put aside because of this is just unbearable in 2023. We have to step up to bring awareness and equality.

Hafsa Kanchwala
Period Poverty is often overlooked and shoved under the rug in our own communities- quite frankly it happens everywhere. Young women should not have to suffer as a result of not having adequate access to hygiene products. Women's health and reproductive rights need to be prioritized and protected especially in a #me too world. Let's support wonderful organizations like the Pad Project that are taking equitable steps for women!

I have seen in past when I was a teenager that my mom always used to say to use cotton or clothes during my periods. It’s not about that we were very low income family but more about wasting money on things that won’t last. I really wanted to say that End Period Poverty is just not inaccessibility of Products like Sanitary Pads but also the inaccessibility of information.

We take everything for granted. I had no idea that women in Northern India lost out on an education once they hit puberty and how embarrassed they were to talk about it and how men viewed women. Thank you to those women who are trying to make a change.

Because even in elite institutions (like ivy league schools) I see fellow students clamoring for period products. Having to ask strangers for pads, having to run out of class just to get their hands on a pad- compromising their peace of mind AND their education to the extent where we don't even question how absurd it is that multimillion-dollar institutions cannot provide period products in washrooms. Menstrual equity for all. Everywhere. ALWAYS.

The stigma around period is a reason why people who bleed can't openly talk about the physical struggles that accompany periods. It can really take a toll on their mental health as well when they can't about how much discomfort they go through while they bleed... And then there are disorders like pcod or endometriosis etc, that can really make their lives difficult. I think being able to talk about it will definitely help them be aware and get the help that they need.

Anyone can bleed no matter what gender they identify as, as long as they have the biological features of a uterus and can produce periods in the first place (not all people can based off of diet, menopause, and rare occurances). For all those out there who have periods but are trans or identify as something other than a woman you are still valid and still deserve to have your voice and struggles heard. Love you always, no matter what! -Mud (genderfluid born with a vagina that bleeds too, even if I dont feel like a woman sometimes. I will always have the expiriences of bleeding and the stigma and discrimination that comes along with it, but i know that my voice deserves to be heard too.) The stigma ends with US. ALL of us, so dont be afraid to scream and shout! Let your voice flow into others minds. Make the people hear you! ♥️❤️♥️❤️

I wish that women and girls were not held back by their periods. I hope that through projecys like this they can feel free, unashamed and be in awe of the wonders of the female body. I hope that men begin to reflect this too and show gratitude and respect for women's bodies. I have been fortunate enough to have support and readily available sanitary products all my life of which I am very grateful, however all women should have this as their right.

Yes indeed, the period for women outside the western world is quite a problem. Especially in India women are very often bashful and during their period it is for women very difficult to find proper toilets or rooms for cleaning themselves . All this gives women and girls very much limitations to go outside there own houses. At the end it results in leaving school and education in general and therefore it is very important to create opportunities for women and girls especially so they can take care of themselves when needed and being able to continue and finishing their school and education and so being capable of taking chances in their future lives.

In my country, Uganda, many women, and children cannot afford to purchase menstrual napkins due to widespread poverty, especially in rural areas. Pupils drop out of school because of the shame and stigma associated with the menstrual cycle. I and my family through a registered C.B.O (Friends of Luuka), have dedicated personal resources and time to change this unfortunate situation through the provision of free sanitary napkins to upper primary class pupils and also the provision of materials to enable them to make reusable sanitary napkins.

Being a women, I can understand the pain of crores. Every month we bleed and we go through so much pain so that our husbands can become fathers and we can become mothers and we can have a family. Instead of helping women society shames us and looks down at us. We are seen as dirt, we are isolated, we are looked down as if we are creating a crime. We don't get pads without perfectly wrapping it up in a newspaper because what will society say? Omg, a men is carrying a pad? My simple, one word question to you is WHY? why is it looked down if a women/men is carrying a pad? Why are women stopped from visiting their beliefs when they are menstruating? Why are women the ones who always have to breathe in suffocation? Why? Why? Why?. The time has come to change our thoughts and to support people. As human beings we should be ashamed of ourselves for even thinking all of this. If you can marry a women, then supporting her through tough times is your duty. Its bloody natural, Let's stop period shaming, and lets become human beings one again. I pledge to stop period shaming and to stand up to anybody who goes through this bullshit. Lets become human beings once again and lets find humanity. Thank you - Kruthagnya kruthagnya8@gmail.com kruthagnya2008@gmail.com

As someone who was born male but identifies as female, I cannot claim to have personal experience with periods. That said, it's not just empathy or apathy, with no in between. Sympathy is possible without empathy. I'm done with the "yOu'Re NoT a GiRl So YoU dOn'T gEt It. YoU kNoW nOtHiNg" b.s. You can understand what something is like without experiencing it. And I'm here to say that my knowledge means something. It means I feel just as strongly about the end of period shame as everyone here. My words have power, and I intend to let it flow through all people. Period shame will cease, and ignorance will not prevail. Sorry, I'm good at speeches of empowerment and I talk too much so here we are lol. PERIOD SHAME WILL END IF I HAVE TO DIE TRYING.

English: Menstruation shouldn't be stigmatized. It is as normal and natural as breathing. The stigma surrounding menstruation prevents many of the menstruators from getting their basic human rights to education, work, health, sanitation, and many more. Their needs and concerns need to be taken seriously. We also need to start talking about menstruation candidly in conversation, without shame, not only to fellow menstruators, but also the general public. Indonesian: Menstruasi tidak seharusnya distigmatisasi. Hal tersebut adalah sesuatu yang senormal dan sealamiah bernafas. Stigma seputar menstruasi mencegah banyak dari para menstruators mendapatkan hak dasar atas pendidikan, pekerjaan, kesehatan, sanitasi, dan masih banyak lagi. Kebutuhan dan kekhawatiran mereka perlu ditanggapi dengan serius. Kita harus mulai membicarakan menstruasi secara terang-terangan, tanpa rasa malu, tidak hanya kepada para menstruator lain, tetapi juga masyarakat umum. Oh, and Happy Menstrual Hygiene Day, everyone! <3

Reducing period stigma matters because it extends far beyond simply being a "woman's issue" at that time of the month. Stigma is a social and systemic issue that have direct limitations to a girls access to education, physical and mental wellbeing to name just a few. Reducing stigma not only allows women and girls the space to achieve socioeconomic mobility, it also allows them to reclaim agency

Growing up playing sports my period always felt awkward and uncomfortable, it was rarely talked about and I’d suffer through in silence. As I got older I learnt how to better manage my symptoms and started speaking openly around my period. I also started advocating for those without access to basic sanitary items. Too many girls drop out of school due to their periods and this needs to end! No girl should have to suffer due to her period.

When firstly I got my periods is in my vacation of std 6th then I have to know about that, so I just get started to talk about periods in my class, so I am very shocked to know that why they are shy to talk about periods, it is our pride but I doesn't had stopped to talk openly and I am very glad to know that the other girls also want to stop this Uneccesary system , I am also with this project

Periods are natural! I don’t want the little girls coming up in the world to feel like they should be ashamed of a natural body process! We need to speak openly about it so it become more accepted

The stigma stops with me because I have been there. I have been the one to feel the shame. I have hid period products and didn't want to mention it especially out loud due to what society conditions us for. I also have a young daughter that is growing up and I want to prove to her to do what is right. Stick up for herself and fellow menstruators. I want her to be proud of what her body goes through and provides for her. I want her to know that she is a powerful being with or without a period, but she is stronger with it. #ibleedtoo

I pledge to reflect on morals and actively dismantle stereotypes by acknowledging periods and being a part of this wonderful movement.

I am a proud women, a proud feminist and I am proud to have my periods.

Period poverty has huge global effects because roughly half of the world's population are menstruators at some point in their lives. Lack of access to menstrual products can prevent people from being able to work. Menstruators in developing countries, as well as the US, can also be prevented from receiving an education due to period poverty. At the same time, we should recognize that periods can be debilitatingly painful, and we must destigmatize the necessity of paid menstrual leave.The tampon tax must be abolished and period products should be free. Menstrual shame and period stigma prevents some people from purchasing menstrual products. I pledge to do my part to end the period stigma.

Sara Oberle
Period poverty is a manifestation of gender-based discrimination. The perpetuation of this stigma is the result of a vicious cycle that is powered by silence in the conversation and inaccessibility to education. This cycle is broken only through a societal shift working to increase the salience of menstruation as a normal process. Education, well being, security, etc., cannot continue being endangered by an irrational stigma surrounding the period. This is why I strive to actively dismantle stereotypes by acknowledging periods in all capacities.

As a gay cis-male, I am pledging to help stop the negative stigma that is prevalent in the gay male community. Periods & menstruation are as natural as breathing air.

Because of their period - start of being able to be a mother. Not everyone knows what it actually means to get their period, also seen in the documentary. Educate yourself and open up for menstruation.

You matter! Your story about menstruation matters. It is natural to menstruate. Taking care of you during menstruation is your right!

Period is something normal - we should all accept it and treat it with respect and understanding. I remember when I had my period for a first time I was so ashamed so I ended up hiding it for a year from my friends. Even in school, I barely had an education on period- only one class! Also, this one class was exclusive only for girls, which is wrong. It is time to say stop to the period stigma which unfortunately still exists in 21century.

As a man I want to say to all girls and grown up women that there is nothing bad about periods it's a normal body function and you should not feel bad or ashamed about it. If your boyfriend or anybody is trying to shame you or make fun about it to the point where it gets annoying speak up.

As a disabled person, being in menstrual periods as heavy as it is still, and with such pain associated with menstrual period in addition to having to wear the long braces it has always cause me pain but felt embarrassed to share this experience. I felt that it is a thing I should keep a secret as how our culture restricts. This caused me a lot of pain and created chances for other related diseases. Girls and fellow woman let's help one other to communicate freely our menstrual period experiences so that we can serve the woman communities by being at least get helped in some ways. I used to always fall sick every two weeks prior, a heavy one week bleeding and the final one week of mouth sours and other body pain. Working was by force not able. It's a horrible situation.

Everyone would benefit from more open and loving conversations surrounding periods and menstruation 🩸 that way we can make the world a better, more compassionate and inclusive place. Menstruation is a powerful and beautiful part of life and should be respected, supported and celebrated. Everyone should feel free and relaxed to talk about the world of periods, in a way that has not existed and still does not in so many communities and parts of the world. End the stigma!!

I was really moved by the documentary. Even though I am privileged, my life has been greatly shaped by my excessive bleeding. from age 14 to age 49, I have had over 4,000 days of bleeding. I have bled for 8 days every 15-20 days. It's been a horrible journey, and I am lucky to have pads, tampons, and ibuprofen, and was able to attend school and university. I had to use cloth rags once while traveling, and I was unable to do anything for 3 days and I bled through the bedding. had I been born somewhere else, I would have had to drop out of school at 14. The fact that periods are keeping girls and women out of school, breaks my heart. I want to help, and this is my first tiny step. Thank you.

It's important to talk about periods because so many women are shamed for having them or not having them. The lack of education on periods is affecting people who have periods. So many people across the globe are in need of menstrual hygiene products and it's important to talk about it.

Girls around the world lack access to hygienic products and because of this are missing out on a proper education because of their periods. We shouldn’t have to hide or be deprived of rights because of something that is so natural!
