Women around the world REJOICE!!
Coexist, a UK based company, is going to create a ‘period policy’ which would enable women who really suffer during that time of the month to take time off.
Bex Baxter (side note: what an awesome name) is the company director and she says ‘I have managed many female members of staff over the years and I have seen women at work who are bent over double because of the pain caused by their periods.
‘Despite this, they feel they cannot go home because they do not class themselves as unwell.
‘And this is unfair. At Coexist we are very understanding. If someone is in pain – no matter what kind – they are encouraged to go home.’
Seriously how fabulous is this woman?
Lets hope more companies sign up for similar policies. We should give a tip of our hat to Nike though who already have a Code of Conduct which includes menstrual leave in place around the world.
