Vaibhav India started this petition to Delhi Government and

My petition is about Menstrual Awareness among people. According to NHS 2015-16,only 18% women have access to sanitary pads,tampoons etc. About 800000 women dies annually due to improper mentstrual sanitation.

Till now,periods are seen as a matter of shame and taboo. The people thinks that women became impure during their periods. In many homes,girls are not allowed to participate in religious functions like Pooja or are not allowed to enter kitchen because people thought that they are impure during periods and will affect the purity of religious place and of food. This is backward and idiotic thinking. Periods are as natural as digestion of food or breathing of air. If we thought periods as matter of shame,then we must also shame on our breathing,beating of our heart.

If this awareness came,our country will observe a revolution. If we even distribute sanitary pads for free,we can't achieve 100% menstrual hygiene because no awareness is there among poor women and their families. The taboos are needed to be broken and awareness on National level must be spread.

I want to create a nation where all women,girls have access to sanitary pads and no shame was there on periods.
