     So when it told me to choose a category for this petition. I had to thought about it for a while. Whether this is a women's problem or a health problem in general. I felt bound to choose women's rights. This specific topic is directed at those who have a vagina. There are so many countries that don't practice the use of pads due to religious circumstances, not being able to afford, using a cloth as a pad, and other various reasons. Many Americans do get the ability to use pads. However, girls in poor families are felt behind. Everyone's family has a different way they handle this sitation. In Nepal, girls felt embarrassed to look at their brothers and fathers, were restricted from accessing the kitchen, praying to god, assembling with a crowded group. In old times, they were sent out of the house to a small hut until 3 days of menstruation was over. I am also a Nepalese woman. I was forbidden to celebrate my favorite holiday because I was going through menstruation. Numerous elderly women still use it in the united states. However, notably throughout countries like South Asia, Africa, the Middle East, females use the cloth a lot more than pads. They utilize cloth because it reuseable and also pads are out of their boundary. One single pad fetches $100, which in the United States is just 0.85 cents. Yes, appropriating the cloth may be reusable, but it arises with the ability to transmit diseases. Using cloths can lead to urinary tract infections. The cloth pad when wet can also irritate your skin. As of speaking just nationwide, the price of pads should subside. Now this will be nonprofit to many business markets. Despite this, for the safety of girls, it needs to be free. These are things that cannot be regulated or prevented. Pads and tampons are determined to be the safest use by scientists. It shouldn't have any prices but as of right now, the value has to reduce. America being the top countries, many people take impressions from us. This will set the most excellent example for developing countries. Sooner or later, pads won't cost as much. I hope that this conveys a message to those that are unaware of how pads are imperative to us.

Sincerely,

Ayushma Dhungel
