As women, a fundamental understanding of menstrual health hygiene is crucial. However, did you know that at least 500 million (yes, that many) women all around the world still lack access to sanitation products? In Malaysia itself, there are thousands of schoolgirls who are made to remain at home during their menstrual cycle. Athena Empowers aims to educate young women on menstrual hygiene management, offering a series of educational workshops on the topic.
