This Sunday we celebrate Mother’s Day in Sweden. Usually we celebrate our mothers by having a nice meal with family and friends, and maybe with some flowers and gifts. However, currently it is hard to have a normal celebration due to the ongoing pandemic.
Today we celebrate international women’s day all around the globe. Despite that it is the 8th of March 2019, 42 years after the day was initiated by the United Nations, women and girls still constitute a group with little influence and power in society.
Grace and Merii are two of the girls that have participated in our project which focuses on menstruation hygiene management (MHM). Unite 2 Learn visited them 9 months after they received their MHM kit, containing reusable sanitary pads, in order to get their thoughts on the pads and the project at large.
