While the entire nation is waving hands to the movie Padman releasing soon in cinemas, my team believes that wearing the pad during periods is the right of every girl and no one should feel shame in using it or even discussing without it. Go and buy pads for you and ask the shopkeeper not to wrap it in a newspaper or not to give in the black plastic bag. You are a girl and you are using pad; there is nothing to feel shame. Enjoy the feminism!
