GCU installs sanitary pads vending machine for female students and staff

Installing a machine to provide sanitary pads to female students and staff at the Government College University (GCU) Lahore was a fantastic gesture.

Automatic vending machines have been installed on the main campus of GCU Lahore to provide sanitary pads and other feminine hygiene products to female faculty members and students. It is a great step towards breaking the taboo.

Vice-Chancellor Prof. Dr. Asghar Zaidi and Wonder Woman Pakistan founder Mohammad Uzair Masood both signed the Memorandum of Understanding.

The event, which was held in GCU’s newly constructed Women Development Center, drew a sizable contingent of female students.

The VC went on to say that it is unfortunate that periods are viewed as a bad thing or an ugly stain, causing women in society to face a variety of problems for no apparent reason, and that with this initiative, GCU’s Women Development Center is taking a step toward the empowerment of female students.

According to information, one Wonder Woman Pakistan vending machine will be installed in the Women’s Development Center and another in the Women’s Rest Room in Bukhari Auditorium, where female students will be able to readily obtain high-quality products at reasonable prices.

In Pakistan, 79% of women do not have regular access to sanitary products, education, or sanitation services. Mrs Sumera Khalil, director of the GCU Women Development Center, stated that this initiative is a breath of fresh air for the thousands of GCU students who face numerous challenges during their menstrual cycle.
