Would You Ever Take Period Leave?

The week of May 16, 2022, Spain is due to vote on a policy that would offer people with severe period pain three days of menstrual leave per month as well as provide free sanitary napkins in schools.

If this passes, the country will become the first in Europe to offer any kind of policy addressing the extreme pain that often accompanies conditions like endometriosis, dysmenorrhea, and fibroids, among others.

This could be a huge leap forward in addressing the very real needs of people with these conditions. However, if similar policies that already exist in Japan, parts of China, South Korea, Taiwan, Zambia, and at a handful of private sector companies are any indication of their effectiveness, there are still factors that often prevent those who need these policies from actually utilizing them.
