Spain is all set to become the first country in Europe to allow women to take leave for ‘menstrual pain’ from the workplace each month.
This new law has been proposed and will be outlined next week.
The Government of Spain is geared up to improve the conditions of women by granting them rights related to health and abortion.
The new law shall grant at least three days of sick leave each month to women who suffer from severe menstrual cramps.
As per reports from Euro News, ‘this medically supervised leave could even be extended to five days for women with disabling periods who suffer severe cramps, nausea, dizziness and vomiting.”
Menstrual leave is offered only in a few countries, including Japan, Indonesia, Taiwan, South Korea and Zambia.
