WOMEN IN INDIA HAVE BEEN RISING!
Some more, some less! Some faster, some slower!
The positive change in the status of women
is visible. They already stand on the threshold of self-assertion demanding rightfully the parity that has eluded their grasp for long enough.
Pinkishe Movement is a dream, an ever-growing dream, which first rippled in the eyes of a 16 years old schoolgirl, Khyati Gupta, when her teenage eyes noticed something which smote her tiny heart. One day, this chit of a girl was appalled when she saw bloodstains on her maid's daughter's dress. On enquiring, to her utter shock, she discovered that they cannot afford pads, hence they recycle discarded pieces of unhygienic cloth every month.
Heartbroken, Khyati undertook research on the subject on the internet and the study showed that majority of females in rural India lack the awareness of menstrual hygiene and some even have no option but to resort to using material like cow dung, leaves, sand, etc. That was horrifying.
This gave birth to Pinkishe Foundation.
