This document sets out how the biological fact of menstruation, the necessity of managing menstruation, and society’s response to both is linked with women’s and girls’ human rights and gender equality. It explains how ensuring that women and girls enjoy certain human rights can in turn help ensure that they can manage their menstrual hygiene adequately, with normalcy and dignity. Likewise, when women and girls face difficulties with managing their menstruation, it negatively impacts the enjoyment of human rights and gender equality.
