Menstrual cycle in the last few decades has been a more socially acceptable topic to discuss about, however, we have yet to take into consideration how it affects us within a working environment. Many females battle with menstrual pain up to 7 days or more (in some cases) every month and this does not get taken into account when taking leave for work. Some women are lucky enough to not experience at all or be in pain for a day or two at most. But, what about the rest? Women are faced with the issue of either filling in a form when they return back to work within 7 days or asked to retrieve a sick note from the doctor if it has been more than 7 days. Menstruating is not an illness, I, just like any other female have to write down 'illness' even though it is not an illness. So why do we need to get a sicknote or fill in a sick form? lets stand against this, if we don't as females, who else will?
