The proposed 3 days a month is a lot, like 13-15% of working days. Why not just give everyone more sick days instead of telling managers they may get 13%-15% less working time from women they hire.

Agreed. That would be the best way to go about it. That way it doesn’t touch title IX issues, which this very well could if implemented in the US.

The whole point of this is to acknowledge that females have to work through an additional stress that not everyone has.

More sick days would not do anything here. Females would still be using sick days for this when those who don't commonly have pain 3-5 days a month get more self care days than them.

3 days is extreme though. 1 a month would be reasonable.

And people with migraines work through additional stress. People with social anxiety work through additional stress. People with chronic pain work through additional stress. Grow up and deal with it like and adult.

Yeah but if only women get this then why wouldn’t employers pass over women for men when they have the chance. Also not all women have periods and some men have them

And why would a woman want her employer to know she’s having her period?
