This Company Offers ‘Menstrual Leave’ For Women On The First Day Of Their Period

Not sure this would ever fly in the states, but a company in India is trying to make Aunt Flo’s monthly visit a little less uncomfortable, according to Bustle.

The company in Mumbai is now offering women “First Day of Period” leave. The company’s HR President says, “The first day is obviously a not so comfortable day for most. It’s time we face the reality. This is not an embarrassment. This is part of life.” Do you like this idea? I can’t help but think of the downside.

You know, everyone at the office knowing your cycle and making comments about why you missed something at work or why you were a little crabbier than usual last week. Maybe I’ll just take my Midol and suffer through it.
