Alwar (Rajasthan), August 19, 2017: The Rajasthan State Women’s Commission will soon start a campaign called, ‘against Indian Culture’. This campaign will be against the live-in relationships which they think are against our Indian Culture. The campaign will give an advice to women on why they shouldn’t get into live-in relationships in the first place.

According to Daijiworld report, Suman Sharma, Chairperson of Rajasthan State Women’s Commission said, “As the relationship is against our culture, there is no provision to help them.” She said in Alwar that the women are the ones who suffer the most in a live- in relationship, even more, when the couple breaks up and this campaign will create awareness. This commission will be the first of its kind state body to take up a campaign like this.

On the legal front, a district forum called Zila Manch will get started in every city; it is being done so that the women facing such problems can lodge a complaint there. At the village level, mahila (women) panchayat will be formed to solve women’s problems in this regard.

New Delhi, May 10 : Even months after the release of “Pad Man”, Bollywood star Akshay Kumar has continued his effort to spread awareness about menstrual hygiene. He has now lent support to a new campaign, bridging the gap between sanitary napkin users from 18 per cent to 82 per cent.

The #18to82 campaign is a part of the Niine Movement, aimed at raising awareness about menstrual hygiene and tackling the age-old stigma against menstruation across both genders and all age groups.

Akshay, who boldly tackled the issue in Hindi film “Pad Man”, took to social media to support the campaign with the message: “Only 18 per cent of Indian women use sanitary napkins v/s 82 per cent who use unhygienic means. I support the #NIINEMovement which breaks the taboos on periods. Help bridge the gap from #18to82.”

The actor said in a statement: “Open and unafraid conversations on menstruation are powerful as they help to breakdown taboos… Menstrual hygiene is an urgent issue that we must resolve in India.

“Together, we can ensure that every female has the right to manage her period safely and with dignity, and the Niine Movement can drive the social revolution that India needs to initiate change for an entire country. The empowerment of women is the empowerment of a nation.”

The Niine Movement is conceived by social entrepreneur Amar Tulsiyan.

Tulsiyan said: “We each have a responsibility to do what we can to tackle the taboos around menstruation and educate the next generation about periods in the right way. It is my hope that through the campaign, the Niine Movement becomes the spark that leads the way in bringing menstrual hygiene and dignity to every woman and girl in India.”

It will convene film personalities, academics, policymakers, government officials, activists, business stalwarts, NGOs and thought-leaders, including Akshay, to discuss the impact that stigma and taboos on menstruation have had on holding girls and women back for centuries.
