Countless Bollywood actors are rising up in support of the film Pad Man, based on the true story of a man whose pad-making skills changed India and women’s health. It’s a fantastic film celebrating a feminine hygiene pioneer. It has been powerful to see some of India’s most famous faces holding a pad. No big deal!
Ending the stigma and ending the shame that is often attached to feminine hygiene products and the female reproductive system is a big endeavor, but I think we can all do our part.
