Aman goyal started this petition to Ministry of Health and Family Welfare and

India being a developing country lags many part on the issue of menstrual health to women. We see many of cases when women from weaker sections don't have enough amount to buy sanitary napkins during the periods.

Periods are the most variable phase in a woman's life, she faces a lot of mood swings sometimes along with palpations and cravings. some women are deprived from the very basic requirements and some are not even aware about the sanitary napkins.

In rural part of India, women are aware but they face a lot of social stigmas related to the menstrual phase like they are not allowed to touch pickles..not allowed to visit religious places and napkins are being sold covered in black sheets which make it embarrassing for a woman to carry.

Doesn't it add a social stress to a woman who is already suffering from the cycle...the women in poor section have to work without napkins so as to feed the family with blood spills all over leaving her in messy and strange situation.

I bow to all the women out there who face the periods and stigmas with bravery and perseverance.

With this petition.. I'm hoping to aware some people out there and I wanna a proper facilities for all the women in all sections. More awareness among people will let to more support to women when they are in hour of need.. if we have more than enough we should donate... I'm not sure when and whether government will work on it but I request you to please help any woman you find possible because they suffer every month.. In developed country like USA  less than 36 % women can afford pads. The situation is more horrible in india, the figure drops to just 19%... imagine the sufferers.

Though many NGOs are working on it but not getting enough funds and support from the  government as well as citizens break their wings. With smiling faces of women and their works..our nation can progress to a lot extent..so please lend your hands towards the initiative by doing at your level and signing this petition and ..

Be the change!
