Menstruation a mark of motherhood: Minister Bhusal

2022 May 28, 13:26, Kathmandu

Minister for Energy, Water Resources and Irrigation Pampha Bhusal said that menstruation is a mark of a woman's motherhood.

Stating that women had to go through gender discrimination due to a lack of awareness, the minister stressed the need for the government at all levels to focus on women's health.

She was addressing the concluding event of an awareness bicycle rally organised here by Expose Nepal on the occasion of the Menstrual Hygiene Day. Expose Nepal has been working against all sorts of violence against women and in the field of menstrual hygiene since 2007.

"We should honor the biological structure of women. There is a need for cooperation among the federal, provincial, and local governments on women's health. Menstruation is a matter of pride, but to sin and a crime. This is a mark of woman's motherhood." She also underscored the need for women to use clean, hygiene, and reusable sanitary pads during menstruation.

On the occasion, the chairperson of Expose Nepal, Gyan Maharjan viewed that violence against women would be reduced to some extent by removing discrimination against women, especially during their menstruation.

The bicycle rally started from Basantapur and went through various parts of the Kathmandu Valley before concluding at Durbar Square in Mangalbazaar in Lalitpur. More than 300 professional cyclists participated in the rally.

The rally aimed to spread the message that the relation between the reuse of sanitary pads and environment-friendly bicycles is important in view of human health and a clean environment, said the rally organizer.
