Every year World Menstrual Hygiene Day is observed on May 28 with an aim to change the social stigma associated with menstruation. The date May 28 was chosen to observe the day because on an average the menstrual cycle for most women is 28 days and the menstruation period for most women is for five days. Hence, the date was kept as 28/5. The theme for this year is: “Action and Investment in Menstrual Hygiene and Health.” In a tweet the United nation wrote that “Menstrual health is a human right. Yet, menstruation can result in discrimination, stigma & exclusion against women & girls."-UNFPA
