This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Imagine growing up in India as a women and hiding menstruation. Add centuries of myths and misunderstandings into the mix and you get India’s biggest taboo. Aditi and Tuhin created a comic book to tackle this issue and get menstruation into the mainstream conversation.

Aditi Gupta and Tuhin Paul are a Husband-Wife Designer Duo. Tuhin is an animator and visual communication designer while Aditi is a user-experience designer. Through their initiative Menstrupedia they spread awareness about menstruation the fun way. Menstrupedia is a small but definitive step to shatter the myths and misunderstanding surrounding menstruation for ages. Together they dream of a future where menstruation is not a taboo but a welcoming change in a girl’s life.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
