Say Yes to Moon Days
Say Yes to Moon Days
Why this petition matters
Sign our petition to encourage more businesses to adopt our 'Moon Day' policy supporting those who suffer during their period.
Talking about your period at work can feel like a very taboo topic especially if you find yourself in a predominantly male workplace. Still to this day, most employees don’t feel comfortable talking to their boss or colleagues about how their period is affecting their mental and physical health.
As such, we at Your Super, a health and wellness brand, are breaking down the taboo around periods in the workplace and striving to make a more inclusive environment with our ‘Say Yes to Moon Days’ initiative.
87% of women at Your Super have felt that their period has affected their working day negatively at some point in the past. That’s why we came up with the ‘Moon Day’ initiative.
So, what’s a ‘Moon Day’? Implemented back in 2019, Your Super offers a ‘Moon Day’ to any employee who is suffering with menstrual symptoms, whether this be a migraine, body aches, nausea, cramps, mental and physical fatigue, etc. The day gives an employee the chance to take an hour, half a day or even a full day off each month to look after their body and give it the rest it needs so that they can come back the next day feeling energised and refreshed.
Our initiative strives to be all-inclusive and acknowledges that not everyone with a period identifies as a woman and not everyone who is a woman has a period. This scheme is available to anyone suffering from menstrual symptoms; however, they identify.
Since implementing this scheme, we have seen an incredibly positive result within our workforce, from support and respect between employees and employers to increased team morale.
We have launched this petition to encourage other businesses to look into implementing a ‘Moon Days’ initiative in their company, as well as raise awareness at government level about the importance of breaking down the taboo around periods and ensuring the workplace environment is inclusive for all genders.
Whether you suffer yourself or know someone that does, please sign here and help us change the workplace for those people who really need it.
