Here you will find wise words about women’s health, stories shared with us by our readers and quotes about our loved Myna.
“For the last six years, I have been listening to women’s stories of suffering, disrespect, and shame. I know a girl my age, Kajal, who was forced to marry and give up her dreams. She is voiceless. But she needs to be heard. Why should she not be allowed to work, when it is only her decision to make? Why should she have to hide her periods when it is only natural that she has them? When I saw how invisible the women were, I knew this was it. I was going to work with these women all my life.”
— Suhani Jalota (Myna Mahila’s founder)
“Imagine a world where the female leaders we revere never achieved their full potential because they dropped out of school at the age of thirteen. In the Western world this is challenging to fathom, but for millions of young women globally, this remains their harsh reality for a staggering reason. From sub-Saharan Africa to India, Iran, and several other countries, the stigma surrounding menstruation and lack of access to proper sanitation directly inhibit young women from pursuing an education.”
