Meghan has worked to combat the stigma attached to menstruation. The Duchess recognizes how menstruation stigma holds girls and women back. In 2017, she worked to help improve this situation on a journey to Mumbai and Delhi in partnership with World Vision. The wise young woman wrote in Time magazine, “To break the cycle of poverty, and to achieve economic growth and sustainability in developing countries, young women need access to education.” She pointed out that “One hundred and thirteen million adolescent girls between the ages of 12-14 in India alone are at risk of dropping out of school because of the stigma surrounding menstrual health.”
