“A school dropout from a poor family in southern India has revolutionized menstrual health for rural women in developing countries by inventing a simple machine they can use to make cheap sanitary pads.
Arunachalam Muruganantham’s invention came at great personal cost – he nearly lost his family, his money and his place in society. But he kept his sense of humor.”
Reading this filled me with absolute joy. This man selflessly, over the span of many years, made women’s health and financial independence a priority, to his own detriment. He’s my new hero, and he is proof that men can be feminists, too.
