When Not To Go To School

In large parts of rural India, the absence of separate toilets for growing girls is taking a toll on their education. Many are unable to attend school during their menstrual cycle.

As the place women have in Indian society, I can't see this ever improving.

Religious superstition and misogyny...two demonic concepts which make life miserable for women around the world.

I hope in the near future girls will be able to attend school during the entire school year. This is a problem that can be solved.

No water pipes, no taps, girls having to tote buckets of water to flush any toilets that do exist - but not when they're menstruating... why does this make me think they don't actually want girls to be educated, and this is but one more way to accomplish that?

Thanks Cal noted. India has a huge population and huge distances. I appears that they are trying to improve this situation. This is wrong, but lets not be too judgemental.

Counting my blessings..lost count again.:) Fell into a deep trance meditation, enjoyed fantasizing about using my clean white toilet with running water..a hot shower or soaking hot bath..bliss just a water tap away..just don't drink it ! :) Soaking up enough toxins already just bathing in that blessing..:0) Now I have 4 bubbling springs of fresh deep flowing water. Potential small lake and ponds, dams, swales, gravity water for domestic and self generated electricity. Foods. Tools. Know how. Freedom from bondage, chained to the land :) NO. Self sustaining with minimal effort. :) Minimal expense compared to city property and costs. Life on a like King :)
