Kalki Koechlin is one of the few actors who has never shied away from voicing her opinion on social issues. She has, time and again, spoken up on socially relevant issues and now she’s done it again in this video, wherein she questions the relevance of imposing a 12 per cent tax on sanitary napkins.

The actress bluntly opines that periods are taxing any way for women and putting ‘taxes’ on them really does not help. “I don’t know about acche din but humari life mein har mahine paanch not-so-acche-din toh hote hi hain (I don’t know about good days, but in our lives, we have at least five mandatory not-so-good days),” she says and goes on to add that though different brands of sanitary napkins exist neither of them come tax-free, and while people in the country are busy debating about “airport looks” and “religious crooks” the topic of menstruation, which she says is not a “majboori” (weakness) but a perfectly natural bodily function is overlooked.

The video is titled GST but it is not the abbreviation of Goods and Service Tax rather Girls ko Satao Tax.
