“In order to reclaim our full selves, to integrate each of these aspects through which we pass over the course of our lives, we must first learn to embrace them though our cycles.”~ Lucy H. Pearce
Dharma Bharathi Mission takes up this special initiative for the young women studying in DBM and talks about the ‘less talked about’ ~ Mensuration health, hygiene and all the myths associated with it. DBM organized a session for female students where 85 Trombay Vocational Training girls participated. We are grateful to Dr. Shraddha who took out time from her hectic schedule to conduct this session. Apart from Dr. Shraddha 10 teachers shared their knowledge on mensuration.
The topics that were covered in the session are :
Why do women mensurate, the nutrition that needs to be taken during the phase, the factors affecting them during this phase. The myths and unnecessary fear associated with the Period were also addressed. The session was very informative, generated a lot of awareness and was well acknowledged by everyone.
This was followed by the free distribution of Sanitary napkins to all female students.
