Addressing The Gathering, Manushi Said, First of all i will talk about my project. Both of my parents are doctors and My parents are my idol. I believe that girl can do anything if she is healthy. I’m a medical student when i was studying i noticed there is limited use of sanitary pads. I have been brought up in metropolitan cities. I had no idea about the poor state of women’s menstrual hygiene in our country and was shocked to see the real picture. Because ofthe many notions associated with menstruation, girls in villages are often forced to quit studies. Many others are married away”.
