28 menstruating women cook at the ‘Period Feast’

Feb 24, 2020 17:24 IST

Breaking away from the stigma surrounding menstruation, 28 menstruating women from a Delhi-based NGO ‘Sachhi Saheli’ organized a ‘Period Feast’ on Sunday, February 23rd. The women, on their period, cooked and served food to over 300 attendees, including Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia. The event was a silent protest to counter the negative statements made by a priest from the Swaminarayan Bhuj Mandir in Gujarat and the incident where 68 girls where asked to prove that they are not menstruating in order to enter the hostel kitchen. A street play was also performed to dispel superstitions associated with periods.
