  • Stay Home, Sisters

    I was confined for twelve days. Restricted from going out into the sunlight, from seeing any male family members. Filled with fear and uncertainty. I still remember those days and nights, my eyes fixed on the ceiling while rays of light came and went.

    This was my first period.

    It took time to grasp the taboo surrounding menstruation––I’m still trying to understand it.
