A subject so taboo that rural Indians only use its initials

How do you teach girls about something so taboo that no one — not even their mothers — will discuss? In traditional, rural India, instructors use games, films, and conversation to help female students understand what's going on with their bodies, especially menstruation. And that knowledge can be the start of other changes in how they see their roles in school and beyond.
