Read a part of Harnaaz’s speech here – “Namaste Global Citizens. I am proud to join you and these two remarkable young women to talk about Periods. My mom is a gynaecologist, so I grew up talking about my period with no shame and I always had access to the products that I needed. But that’s not the case for more than 500 million people around the world who experience period poverty.”

“Last night at @glblctzn we announced our new collective: ‘Global Menstrual Equity Accelerator’, with a new campaign called ‘Period for Change’, which will fight stigma, influence policy, and secure the resources needed to end period poverty. I’m truly honoured and grateful for everyone who made it happen. Let’s unite together and spread the word ‘Period for change’ to end period poverty,” Harnaaz captioned her post.

Earlier, Harnaaz had posted a picture with Priyanka and thanked her for her kindness. “I couldn’t have asked for us to meet in any other way. Thanks @priyankachopra for your kindness at @glblctzn…you killed it,” she wrote in the caption. See the post below.

Meanwhile, Harnaaz Sandhu became the Miss Universe in December last year.
