Protesting in a different way, a group of Jamia students wrote feminist messages on sanitary pads and pasted them on trees and walls across the campus.

The move was taken to raise awareness about women environment and breaking gender taboos.

Some of the messages read:

“Period blood is not impure, your thoughts are.”

“Menstruation is natural, rape is not.”

“Streets of Delhi belong to women too.”

“Rapists rape people, not outfits.”

“Kanya Kumari, Gandisoch tumhari.”

The group is getting overwhelming response and are now planning to take the campaign to market places, Metro stations, and other public places.

The campaign was originally started by German woman, Elone Kastratia, who started an international campaign with the hashtag #padsagainstsexism.
