Results for - The cultural stigma around women's periods!

3,148 voters participated in this survey

In Ethiopia and many other parts of the world menstruation is still considered taboo. According to UNICEF, the subject is generally not taught in schools and most girls never discuss it with another person. Disposable sanitary products are very expensive and often unavailable, so nearly 75% of Ethiopian women and girls don't have access to the menstrual supplies they need to manage their periods.
