Menst​rual Hygiene Management Campaign

In educated and elite Nepali circles, a different kind of “menstrual huts”

- Tsering D Gurung, Kathmandu

Twenty-five-year-old Rajina Shrestha ticks all the boxes of a modern Nepali woman. She is educated, opinionated and fiercely independent. But like thousands of others belonging to that troupe, she has not been able to reject one practice: observing menstrual restrictions every month.

लाज नमानौं

दिनेश गौतम | अंकुर | ३ माघ २०७५ ०८:२५:००
कक्षामा बसिरहेका बेला महिनावारी हुने हो कि भन्ने चिन्ता छात्रालाई हरेक महिना हुन्छ। गोरखा सिरानचोकस्थित महेन्द्र माध्यमिक विद्यालयमा अध्ययनरत छात्रालाई पनि यस्तै तनाव हुन्थ्यो। कक्षाकोठामा बसेको बेला महिनावारी भयो भने उनीहरू लाज मान्थे। पेट दुख्या छ भन्दै घोप्टो पर्थे। कोही त रुन्थे पनि।

महिला अधिकृतको महिनावारी पीडा : श्रीमानको बाइकमा बस्न पनि पाउँदिनथें

काठमाडौं : ‘महिनावारी भएको समयमा थोर बहुत छुवाछुत जहाँ पनि हुन्छ, मैले भोगेकी छु । मैले धारो छुन पाउँदिन थें, माइत हुँदा मात्र होइन, मैले विहे गरेर आइसकेपछि पनि धेरै समस्या झेलेकी छु । मैले महिनावारी भएको समयमा श्रीमान्को बाइकमा बस्न समेत पाउँदिनथें ।’
महिनावारी हुँदा एक जना महिला कतिसम्म पीडित हुन्छिन् भन्ने अरु तथ्य खोजिरहनु नै पर्दैन । महिनावारीको समयमा हुने यो समस्या सामान्य गृहिणी वा गाउँघरमा ढिकीजाँतो गर्ने महिलाको होइन । न त कुनै काल्पनिक पात्रको हो ।

A Mother Daughter Conversation

- Niva Maharjan


“Menstruation is a natural process, one should embrace it,” my mom said to me while
discussing the current status of menstruating women.
“In the past, we did not have access to sanitary pads like today. Many of us had a common
kitchen and living rooms, so we were not allowed in the kitchen. Myths were created so people
would strictly follow it. However, these myths slowly became tradition.” said my mom.
I agree with my mom. There are certain customs in our tradition that don’t make much sense.
Many menstruating girls, especially in rural areas, are restricted from taking baths, going to
school, consuming any dairy products, and touching books.
