“Right now, 88% of women in India resort to using dirty rags, newspapers, dried leaves, and even ashes during their periods, because they just can’t afford sanitary napkins”
So this guy takes it upon himself to solve the problem.Whats great about this article, is the sacrifice he went through to make this happen for women all across India.
“He first tried to get his wife and sisters to test his hand-crafted napkins, but they refused. He tried to get female medical students to wear them and fill out feedback sheets, but no woman wanted to talk to a man about such a taboo topic. His wife, thinking his project was all an excuse to meet younger women, left him. After repeated unsuccessful research attempts, including wearing panties with his do-it-yourself uterus, he eventually hit upon the idea of distributing free napkins to the students and collecting the used ones for study. That was the last straw for his mother. When she encountered a storeroom full of bloody sanitary napkins, she left too.”
Like really dude?!!!!! Love his commitment. Then he doesn’t sell out, he franchises his machines, so that other ppl can make their own sanitary napkins in other territories. Like really dude! – Nobel peace prize pls.
