As the lockdown was imposed, multiple efforts were put forward by the government to provide some relief to vulnerable and marginalised communities in terms of essential products as well as services. A number of relief initiatives started functioning around this time led by individuals and collectives, and we didn’t come across many who covered menstruation as part of their work as well.
With lockdown, many menstruators lost the purchasing power to buy sanitary napkins, some could not access them because of restrictions of mobility and many of them faced scarcity of supply in their local stored because of disrupted supplies.
