Through My Own Eyes

“Since this is such a taboo in my community, I never felt like this was something that empowers me. But now that I’m growing up and forming my own opinions and seeing the world through my own eyes, I do think that it’s empowering in a sense that now me being aware of my body and what happens to it every month is a way of me standing up to my society and their views on my body.” ~Anonymous, Female, Lebanon
