Some people ridicule that most Chinese women may experience these four stages of life: mother-style mate, nanny-style wife, widowed child-rearing, widowed marriage. Behind the joke is the same phenomenon: the absence of men in family responsibilities.
"Even my wife can't protect, how dare to call a man?"
Earlier this year, India launched a new movie: "The Padded Man."
I have seen Iron Man, Batman, and the "pad". How can it be linked to the "Xia" word that symbolizes strength and courage to save the world?
Some people say that the film tells the story of "a man uses a Sanitary napkin
to save 500 million women."
Like this year's red-hot Indian film, the film still focuses on women's issues.
In order to appeal to men and women for equal rights, this time, India has not even let out Sanitary
Because a man
Indian women can afford sanitary napkins
The rural guy Laxmi, not too much culture, is a full-fledged wife and madman, who cares for his wife.
The calm life of the two was broken at a party.
The wife suddenly left, one person was staying outside, and Laxmi’s advice was useless.
Under the question, Laxmi only knew that his wife had come to menstruation.
According to Indian customs, women are forbidden during menstruation, cannot enter the house, and cannot be close to any man.
The most unbearable thing for him is that his wife is still using rags to solve the problem of the physiological period. He is not willing to rub the bicycle for him.
Laxmi knows that not paying attention to hygiene may cause great harm to his wife's health.
But no matter how Laxmi advised his wife, his wife felt that menstruation was a shame and refused to use sanitary napkins.
For the sake of his wife's health, Laxmi decided to go to the store to buy a pack of sanitary napkins.
To his surprise, a pack of sanitary napkins cost 55 rupees. In the Indian countryside at the time, most people could not afford it.
Laxmi asked a friend who had passed by to borrow money to buy a sanitary napkin and then went home. The wife saw that he was determined to ask him to return.
Laxmi did not give up.
Instead, it has opened up its own path to develop low-cost sanitary napkins, even at the expense of “testing by law”:
Experimenting with himself on cotton and pig blood resulted in leakage of the sanitary napkin and pig blood on the crotch.
Laxmi, who has repeatedly tried and lost, has never given up trying, but his efforts have not changed the understanding of the people around him.
In the ignorant small village, the villagers regarded him as a "scum" and thought he became a vampire and sucked the girl's blood at night.
The wife and mother were too rumored to leave him.
In desperation, Laxmi left his hometown and came to the big city to learn how to make sanitary napkins.
It's just that the big company's machines for making sanitary napkins are too expensive. To make a sanitary napkin that most women can afford, the key is to rely on low-cost machines.
After many attempts, Laxmi finally built a manual pad making machine for Rs. 90,000, which is much lower than the multi-stage machine of multinational companies.
And each pad only needs 2 rupees, which is 20 times lower than the price on the market.
