Remember that look you get when you say you are menstruating or you are on your periods? Have you seen your mothers, daughters, friends, sisters go through the same prejudice every month? Then this film is for you.
Menstruation is nothing to be scared of. It is not dirty. This short film, titled ‘Her First Time’ beautifully explains that her first period is just any other event in a woman’s life that is important. It is natural, it is normal.
The film states that 70% of mothers in India consider menstruation to be dirty. And 23% of girls drop out of school when they get their first period. Also, 90% of fathers are unaware of how to deal with their daughter’s puberty. Sad isn’t it? We do not even talk about it.
