When Your Period Is A Pain For Productivity

Spain’s recent proposed bill to grant women up to three days of menstrual leave a month has made headlines, as the European country looks to add itself to a handful of countries around the world that provide for menstrual leave. With Lembah Jaya MP Haniza Mohamed Talha urging Putrajaya to consider doing the same, we take a look how much period pain affects a women’s physical and mental health (and thus their productivity), and whether such a move should be legislated or left in the hands of employers.
