Periods Aren’t Dirty
The conversation around menstruation has always been suppressed due to embarrassment or what we call, “Period Stigma”.
Malaysian women and girls are led to believe that periods are unclean and it is something that should be kept hidden and hushed. Myths and misconceptions surrounding the female’s sexual and reproductive health that are left unaddressed are not helping the situation either.
There is nothing to be ashamed about something natural; the menstruation cycle is part of being a woman.
SHEROES and Sexual Health Yes! (SHY) are joining forces to break this stigma by having an Open Conversation on the topic “Periods aren’t Dirty” live on Zoom! Dr Rebecca, Co-Founder of SHY will be invited to talk about the female’s menstrual cycle, a.k.a. PERIOD, and will address myths surrounding it.
