“Periods cannot stop girls. Period.”
Akshay Kumar’s ‘Padman’ became a voice for the campaign of the necessity of sanitary napkins to be available at low prices. Not only this, the movie also aimed to disregard the taboos associated to menstruation. This decision was praised by everyone, especially women. In appraisal of the decision.
The reel-life Padman, Akshay Kumar tweeted “One of those days when news brings tears of joy as a cause close to your heart gets fulfilled. Thank you, #GSTCouncil, for understanding the need for menstrual hygiene & exempting sanitary pads from tax. I’m sure crores of women in our country are silently sending gratitude your way.”
