Women have to put up with so much nonsense
In the essay Menstruation, Women and Society, it’s explained that menstruating Hindu women are not allowed to “enter the kitchen and temples, sleep in the day-time, bathe, wear flowers, have sex, touch other males or females.” They’re also banned from riding an animal or driving a car.
Muslims believe that most blood is unclean, so a woman on her period is not allowed to take part in religious activities during her menses, but she is allowed to be social with other people. She should not pray, and she is disallowed from having intercourse.
Sikhism has things a bit more correct. Women are equal to men, even during that time of the month. The founder of the religion, Guru Nānak, said that seeing a menstruating woman as unclean is absurd because one can’t be made clean just by washing.
