An artist whose image of herself with blood on her bed and trousers was removed from Instagram has denied uploading the picture to be provocative, saying it was aimed at challenging the taboos surrounding menstruation instead. Rupi Kaur uploaded an image onto the social networking site for a menstruation-themed photo series developed by her and her sister Prabh. The image, which was taken by Prabh, shows Ms Kaur lying down on a bed fully clothed with two spots of blood visible on her clothes and on the sheet. It was removed from Instagram twice for violating its community standards. Ms Kaur challenged the removal and the image was eventually restored on the site. However, the divisive photo series subsequently made headlines around the world and received a very mixed response. Ms Kaur, a university student from Toronto, in Canada, said she choose menstruation as a topic to de-mystify periods and highlight the struggles faced by menstruating women. Never in a million years did I expect it to be on every major headline everywhere.
