Periods and Religion

Menstruation is a naturally occurring phenomenon responsible for the continuation of human race. And yet, across religions and culture, it is treated as a problem with varying degrees. People who bleed are looked down upon as ‘impure’ and ‘untouchable’. They are not allowed to get involved in religious affairs when on periods or after the onset of menarche. Menstruating bodies are dealt with as polluted and often metted harshly. In many religions, which not so surprisingly were all incepted by men, there is a set of stringent regulations meant to be followed for a bleeding person. Religion and periods don’t go together, since the latter works on science and logic.
