Cinema Series: Menstrual Man

Arunachalam Muruganantham was a school dropout who, after discovering his wife’s rudimentary means of managing her period, went on a quest to provide low cost sanitary towels to rural Indian women. With limited resources at his disposal, he adopted extreme methods to conduct his research. At first he was labelled a pervert and shunned. Today, Muruganantham is hailed as a visionary who is empowering rural women across India.

Menstrual Man tells the inspiring story of an unlikely hero who stood up for India’s ignored. A critical and audience favourite, the film underscores the importance of empowering women to combat poverty, and the power in every individual to make a difference.
