Menstrual health advocate Aditi Gupta and husband Tuhin Paul discuss their innovative comic book, ‘Menstrupedia’ at TEDxBangalore.
Having experienced her own problems growing up in India, in a culture of shame, silence, and myth, compelled her and Tuhin Paul to create Menstrupedia, a 90-page comic book introducing the concept of menstruation and the basics of female health to young girls in India.
The pair hopes Menstrupedia will be the antidote to India’s menstrual taboo, making female health straightforward, interesting and easy-to-understand. The comic book’s success will be inspiring for the many other countries on our globe where women face similar taboos, harassment and misunderstandings.
