The guest speaker for the day was Dr Ankeeta M J, associate professor in the department of Community Medicine; KS Hedge Medical Academy, Mangalore.
Dr Ankeeta began her presentation with a quote, ‘The body parts we think are less honorable we treat with greater respect. And the body parts that need to be covered in public we treat with propriety and clothe them.’
In her presentation she spoke about understanding female body and about sustainable feminine hygiene solutions and products available for women. She created awareness among the students about the menstrual hygiene and to use eco friendly sustainable solutions for menstrual hygiene such as menstrual cup. “You should educate yourself genuinely on monthly periods of women on Menstrual Hygiene Day,” she said.
