Menstruation : keeping girls away from school in Zambia



By Meluse Kapatamoyo

Today the world commemorates Menstrual Hygiene Day. Launching the day on ZNBC television last evening under the theme 'Act together to support Menstrual Hygiene in Schools' Education minister, Michael Kaingu said hundreds of girls in Zambia miss classes monthly, while some stop school altogether once they start to menstruate.

What measures should be put in place to ensure that girls are made to feel more comfortable and stay in school when they are menstruating? PYM menstruation

In most of Zambian society -especially the rural areas- menstruation is a big myth! The elderly prefer that it is kept under wraps.

The result is that when it starts, it is met with sacredness not acceptance. And this explains these attitudes among the people.
