Woman Runs London Marathon Without a Tampon, Bleeds Freely to Raise Awareness * 2

She's doing it to fight "period shamers" Whatever the fuck that means

Woman Runs London Marathon Without a Tampon, Bleeds Freely to Raise Awareness



By Char Adams @CiCiAdams_

08/07/2015 AT 03:15 PM EDT
Kiran Gandhi, who has played drums for singer M.I.A. and Thievery Corporation, decided to run the London Marathon without a tampon. Gandhi let her blood flow freely to raise awareness about women who have no access to feminine products and to encourage women to not be embarrassed about their periods.

"I ran the whole marathon with my period blood running down my legs," the 26-year-old wrote of the April race on her website.

Gandhi, a Harvard Business School graduate, wrote that she got her period the night before the big race and thought that a tampon would be uncomfortable while she ran. But that isn't the only reason she decided to let it flow.

"I ran with blood dripping down my legs for sisters who don't have access to tampons and sisters who, despite cramping and pain, hide it away and pretend like it doesn't exist."



She added: "I ran to say, it does exist, and we overcome it every day."

Clad in all pink for breast cancer awareness, the 26-year-old finished the race in four hours, 49 minutes and 11 seconds. She told Cosmopolitan that she ran through the pain of cramps and the anxiety of the race (which she had spent a year preparing for) and felt empowered as she did so.

"I felt kind of like, Yeah! F--- you!," she said. "I felt very empowered by that. I did."

After the race, she took photos with her family and friends, wearing her period-stained running pants proudly.



Gandhi tells PEOPLE that she decided to run without a tampon to highlight the sentiment of period-shaming and the language surrounding women's menstrual cycles. She wrote on her site that "on the marathon course, sexism can be beaten."

"If there's one way to transcend oppression, it's to run a marathon in whatever way you want," she wrote. "Where the stigma of a woman's period is irrelevant, and we can re-write the rules as we choose."

I personally think what she did is great. There is a huge stigma and culture of "nastiness" surrounding women's periods. Especially for women from her country of origin (India), to even be on your period is to be considered dirty and unclean, so many women feel as if they have to hide it. In many parts of the world, young girls and teens are isolated, kept out of school, and not allowed to even be outside of the house if they are menstruating.

I've made art with my period blood, but this lady took it a step even further. She's got way more balls than I do. Good for her.

I don't think anyone is going to give you their address here, man. Idk what was said or care, but you aren't going to change the world, one ass kicking at a time. Don't let douche bags online wrile you up. He is baiting you hard.

Back on topic, it's very bizarre to me how social paradigms must be broken. Another strange story for mankind's history books!

Ive heard about period shaming....how backwards is this? Periods have been around since the human species evolved....

In her country, men tease the girls about periods.. but they come to America to become doctors............................. .. . . . . . .  . . . . . . . . . . and graduate from Harvard......

Instead of dropping runners behind you with period funk and blood splatter, how about properly educating your people in class about what a period is.... since they want to come over here to be doctors and dentists.........


Spent a year prepping to run without a tampon............ K,....

lol

I wish I had a vagina, then I'd wipe my menstrual blood on my face and use it as war paint to scare my enemies.

Isn't that the one time when the men do all the housework because the women aren't allowed to for some crazy religious reasons?

Seriously on topic though I don't really understand why people think periods are so gross

I used to eat my ex out on her period all the time

Tasted a bit metallic but still delicious and I felt pretty primal with all that blood smeared across my lips
