Half of the world is women, most of them in Southeast Asia still believe period is secret and dirty instead of natural and life creation. Woman needs to positively see menstruation as a path to connect with her true self.
We want women and girls to claim her natural power, to be the healthy narcissist, to see things positively, to question the authorities and creates impacts to free herself and others from stigmas, norms and taboos that make no sense.
