The IIM-Indore successfully distributed 18,200 sanitary napkins to underprivileged menstruators across India. In doing so, they also set a national record. To do so, IRIS, the annual cultural and management fest of the institute, collaborated with the NGO, Manasa.


In India, the topic of menstruation is taboo. Moreover, even mothers do not talk about it to their daughters. Thus, the Indian Institute of Management, Indore, decided to spread more awareness. Menstruators usually have no one to turn to for questions. Furthermore, menstrual hygiene is a major issue. Many do not talk about infections or problem until they are too serious. Hence, it is truly a trifling problem that needs more attention.

Hence, sanitary napkins, or pads, are the first step to ensuring that menstruators have proper menstrual hygiene. Hence, IRIS launching the Let’s Talk Periods initiative is an important step towards better menstrual hygiene.

Gender equality, poverty, humanitarian crisis and harmful traditions can turn menstruation into a time of deprivation and stigma.

Ramesh Nishank, Union Education Minister, also lauded the efforts of IIM-Indore. The IIM-Indore team also created a video of over 1,000 participants passing sanitary pads to people, allowing them to set the record.
