"Tonårstjejerna sitting on a woven bed in a room with pink walls. Interviewed in Netflix-movie ”Mens – the story of a revolution” and there are cracks in the väggfärgen behind them."
"Maybe it's the cracks in their denial."
"Maybe they know what a bind is, but they are so trained not to talk about either pads or mens that they simply say no."
"at the same time, it is still only 10 per cent of women in India use sanitary pads or tampons. 10% of women in the world's second most folkberikade country, where the total population reaches over breathtaking 1.3 billion people."
"Yes. You will understand the. It means very many menstruating people."
"In India is considered to mens, however, still considered to be “unclean”, the topic is extremely taboo and only last year reported on how young teenage girls were forced to be separated from their families during your period. They were considered “orörbara”."
"6 400 kilometres from India re-emerges the same, inevitable disgrace in another form. A colleague comes forward, whispering in my ear: “do you have a tampon?”. The call is just as hidden here, in what is considered to be one of the world's most gender-equal countries, which of the two girls sitting on a woven bed in India, and looking down in your hands."
"we Have done it, the whole conversation about mens, orörbart?"
"Where I live so is the mens, air. There are as well as not as topic of conversation between the young people which is a damn shame.”."
"A Swedish teenage girl writing a message on Twitter. Her views are echoed by other that describes the mens as ”embarrassing” and ”alone”. Some write that they feel that they are ”in any case, to talk more about it now”. "

In the newspaper ads from the early 1930s, it was considered as ”embarrassing” and women were promised ”discreet packaging”. Women were warned to both play sports and have sex during the menses and in the next the tv ads would blood suddenly be blue instead of red."
"my Entire childhood, I have heard people refer to mens that everything else than just that. The “stuff” I think is favoritordet of all the male relatives I have. Mens, when I think about it, has been made to not to talk about – even when it talked about."
"in 1919, sold the first box maxi pads in the united states, but it was expensive, and many women relied on rags, instead. In the Netflix movie, where two young girls sitting on a woven bed, if you talk again about exactly this. Trasorna. For they have not afford anything else. Not a chance."
"It is 2019 but we behave still as 1919."
"With the rags, ”discreet packaging”, whispers in the ear and in countries where taboos goes so far that girls are excluded from society because they are considered ”unclean”."
"It has been a hundred years in the development of the perception of what is basically the beginning of human existence, and in some ways it feels like nothing has happened."
"”the Story of a revolution” is far from complete. "
"the Question is really if we've even begun."
