Millie Bobby Brown is one of those active voices in society who never shies away from speaking the truth. That’s why she became a part of UNICEF to advocate for the ones who remain unheard. The young actress herself has been bullied and shunned by people for making choices that don’t go with conventions. So the Stranger Things star understands what it feels like to live in a world where a young woman is not considered equal. Bringing some major issues that become an obstacle to the growth of women, she urged people to come forward and end this stigma.

In her capacity as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, Brown, 19, spoke about the issue of period poverty on social media. In the video, the teen superstar talked about how monthly menstrual impact the lives of young women around the globe. She stated that individuals have very different experiences during this time of the month. There are many women who don’t even have basic services like sanitary products and clean water.
