I want to shift the focus of all the indians on a very important issue that is being faced by “88%” women of our India. “THE SANITARY PADS” issue,being a woman i feel so terrible that some women are using ashes and hunk instead of menstrual hygiene products, do you even understand how hard and dangerous this is? do you have any idea? If you do, then you must do something about it.
I know they have reduced the GST tax from 14.5% to 12% but is it all? 2.5% is enough? And sindoor, bindi is tax free, BECAUSE THEY THINK, FOR ME THE LIFE OF MY “SUHAG” IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN MY OWN LIFE. I, a woman disagrees on this, i don’t require sindoor bindi every month but i do require sanitary pads every month, whether i have them or i use ashes and husk but i need something to control that bleeding.
I am a woman and this is my pride that i bleed.
We don’t just have to make it tax free, we have to make some good quality sanitary pads in our country, because Whisper, Stayfree and all the big brands are so expensive and not every girl could afford them anyway.
I wasn’t aware of it, i was just watching a stand up comedy show on youtube and in my suggestions a video pop up that was about sanitary pads i clicked on it and realised what other women are going through in my country.
I don’t know whether this post is going to make any change or not but i couldn’t stop myself from writing it.
