Menstrual Movement: Tackling Taboos

In this 8-minute film – the first of a two-part series – Keki Adikhari (...), a well-known actress, model and film producer in her native Nepal with more than 1.5 million followers on social media - wants to find out how far Nepal has come in the fight against menstrual taboos and restrictions.

She takes the viewer on a journey to the far west of the country where she visits a school and a village in a rural area to learn what has changed in girls’ and women’s daily lives – and what still needs to be done to ensure that every girl in Nepal can thrive during her period. Nepal’s Menstrual Movement was produced with support from German Development Cooperation / Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) on behalf of Germany’s Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) – in cooperation with Nepal’s Menstrual Health and Hygiene Management Partner's Alliance (MHM PA) and as partner of the global Sustainable Sanitation Alliance (https://www.susana.org).
