MANILA, Philippines — Being a girl isn’t easy.

On top of worrying about college applications, piles of homework, relationships turning sour, and self-actualization, we’re told to act like ladies and stick to things girls are good at.

And as if society’s scorn isn’t enough, the biological aspects of being a girl can also be a struggle. Hello, period cramps!

According to a survey by Rappler and Nerve, a data insights company, 47% of Filipinas harbor negative feelings about that time of the month. A third of the respondents also claimed that their period changes their daily routine.

However, female figures in history, or even those we meet everyday, refused to let the struggles of being a woman paralyze them. When women move, they can move to change the world.

This survey was conducted by The Nerve, a data insights company, in partnership with Rappler. In our surveys, mathematically, we aim for at least a 95% confidence level with a 5% margin of error, representative of the population the survey can reach. Even then, there are limits to the veracity of the surveys we conduct and write stories about. These surveys are not incentivized and are given only to readers who visit the site when the survey is being served.
