In India, More Women Need Sanitary Napkins, Not Entry Into Sabarimala

Menstrual activism, radical menstruation, menstrual anarchy or any opposition to the suggestion of impurity during menstruation deserves public support. However, directing it against Sabarimala Temple in Kerala, which allows the entry only of men and women outside reproductive age, reeks of bogus activism because religion and faith by nature are irrational. Menstruation activists, instead, should focus their energies on advocating for menstrual hygiene, which incidentally is awful in India.
