This Woman's Post On Facebook is Going Viral For All the Right Reasons

And she's not ASHAMED of it!

'Don't enter the kitchen today'. 'You can't come to the temple with us'. 'Don't wear shorts when you're on your period'. There are more than enough dos and don'ts when women get a visit from Aunty Flo. And we've all had to do deal with it some point or the other.

And that's why Anushka Dasgupta's post about being publicly jibed about her stained pants on the metro has garnered a lot of rage and applause. But here's the interesting part.

Here's her post.

Needless to say, there were a lot of comments that applauded her guts, and many still that ridiculed her for being 'proud'. But proud or not, it's time we stopped squirming when the topic of menstruation comes up. It's biological and that's that.

And literally, 'You would not be here if we did not menstruate'.
