Dear Ina,

Your post alerting us to menstrual hygiene day on 28 May 2015 gave me the following idea:
If you are able to generate some attention for menstrual hygiene on that day, then more people might also turn to Wikipedia to find out more. Therefore, it may pay off to ensure the information on Wikipedia is good.

You could even think about creating a new article for Menstrual Hygiene Day.
(I actually think a Wikipedia article on World Toilet Day would also be good; so far, it re-directs to World Toilet Organisation)

I can help you with setting up such an article. But careful, it should not be seen as a purely promotional page, but it should be quite "neutral" and ideally include other references which have said something about this day, not just your own.

It would also be useful to review the existing Wikipedia articles on related topics which include: (the Wikipedia page on menstrual cups I have already improved a bit myself because I like menstrual cups; it gets about 500 views per day which is pretty good:

The article on menstruation gets about 900 views per day (

Oh and these articles on Wikipedia are also not bad: In each case, it is quite possible that developing country issues are under-represented which is something I have found on many Wikipedia pages that I have worked on so far (they often have a US-centric view, but we can change that!).
