After winning Miss World 2017 title Manushi Chhillar has started humanitarian world tour on menstrual hygiene. Manushi said while there’s a lot that can happen if all political parties prioritise menstrual hygiene in their manifestos, but it’s not about “just politicians”. “Every individual has a social responsibility. That can push for change in the society,” Manushi told the media.

Today Manushi was in Mumbai’s Dharavi slum for save girl child event and to promote menstrual hygiene, Miss World 2017 Manushi Chhillar will spend 45 days touring her native country with the aim of busting myths about menstruation and raising awareness among millions of women.
