Internalized misogyny is when women subconsciously project sexist ideas onto other women and even onto themselves. In order to unlearn internalized misogyny we need to understand what it truly is, and what it involves. Let me quote some of the most common phrases that reflect this type of thinking.
We have always been surrounded by taboos and myths that exclude menstruating women from many aspects of socio-cultural life. In India, the topic has been a taboo until date. Such taboos about menstruation present in many societies impact on girls’ and women's emotional state, mentality and lifestyle and most importantly, health. But even though there is a taboo regarding menstruation in our society, texts that date back to several thousands of years ago, tell us a different story.
