May 28 marks Menstrual Hygiene Day! By challenging taboos and stigma surrounding menstruation, the day raises awareness of period poverty and the barriers faced by people who menstruate when they seek menstrual products.
This year’s theme, #WeAreCommitted, aims to encourage organizations to publicly announce what they are committed to contribute to create a world where no one is held back because they menstruate by 2030.
