  • The fact that at the point of setting up the office, a contract with a sanitary company was not on the list of utilities.
  • The fact that the few women in the office found other ways to navigate the challenge.
  • The fact that my decision to speak to the manager with a proposal on what needs to be done was termed “brave”.
  • The fact that there are existing laws (Acts of Parliament) that prescribe for the provision of sanitation facilities such as toilets, hand wash facilities; but they do not highlight specifics on menstrual hygiene.
  • The fact that as of 2013, menstrual health was still not a mainstream conversation. Hence, boys and men are generally desensitized from the topic which impacts their decision making in spaces where they hold managerial power.
