I invite you to join me in cosponsoring my resolution recognizing Menstrual Hygiene Day on May 28th. The goal of Menstrual Hygiene Day is to ensure that no woman or girl is limited by something as natural as her period, to promote good menstrual
hygiene management for all women and girls, and to work to change negative social norms around menstruation. You may ask, why is the day commemorated on the 28th of May? Because the average duration of a menstrual cycle is 28 days, and on average,
women and girls menstruate for 5 days per month. Hence 28-5 or May 28th.
