“Period leave” Gives Cramping Women Relief in the Office

A social media community group called Coexist is the first UK company to offer women time off when they are on their periods, and naturally, some people (men) are not happy.

Anyone with a uterus knows the painful cramps and countless other pains of menstruation. For some women these pains are so debilitating, so painful that they are left curled up crying on the couch for hours or days on end. There’s no way to explain the pains of periods to men, so it’s somewhat understandable why some men would get jealous of this new initiative. But is the envy justified?
