Abstract

Menstruation is a natural process. Menstruation and menstrual practices face numerous challenges which includes social, economic, cultural and religious challenges. Those challenges act as a barrier for the menstrual hygiene. When a girl or women is denied from getting access to menstrual products then it can be considered as a human right violation. Such human right violations may emerge from the challenges or barriers of menstrual hygiene. When a girl or women is unable to get the menstrual products then it is affecting the dignity of a girl or women. The involvement of judiciary and the decisions of the court on various matters which uphold the status of women must be given eminence. One of the major reasons for the denial of women friendly toilets and lack of access to menstrual products for women and girls is the male dominated society. Charging costs for the menstrual products can also arise as a human right violation as many of the girls and women across the world are still not able to afford such costs. Many of the girls are lacking a proper education about menstrual hygiene and the need for the same, lack of knowledge about menstrual hygiene act as a great hindrance. There must be proper education about menstrual hygiene in order to overcome the difficulties and barriers they face at home, school and at work places.
