The image of the menstruating girl was part of a photo-series Rupi had put together for her college course. The project sought to show the difference between images of objectified and abused women, and those in their natural state.

Rupi says she wanted to take the taboo out of women’s time of the month. She goes on: ‘I will not apologize for not feeding the ego and pride of misogynist society that will have my body in underwear but not be okay with a small leak when your pages are filled with countless photos/accounts where women (so many who are underage) are objectified, pornified and treated less than human. Thank you.’

Do you think Rupi's response had valid points?

Does the photo make you feel uncomfortable?
This is one of the guidelines on Instagram: Do share photos and videos that are safe for people of all ages. Remember that our community is a diverse one, and that your posts are visible to people as young as 13 years old. While we respect the artistic integrity of photos and videos, we have to keep our product and the content within it in line with our App Store’s rating for nudity and mature content. In other words, please do not post nudity or mature content of any kind.

Do you think Rupi's photo is considered 'mature content'?
