Spain Becomes First Country In Europe To Allow Menstrual Leave
Barriers have been removed, which makes access to abortions and changing the gender of trans people easier.
News Agency of Nigeria
Spain’s sexual and reproductive health law, which includes the right for women to take time off work when they have their period, took effect on Thursday.
The Gender Equality Ministry’s bill, put forward by the left-wing government, was approved by parliament in February.
Since then, amendments have been passed as part of the new law.
Barriers have been removed, making access to abortions and changing the gender of trans people easier.
After the parliamentary vote in February, Equality Minister Irene Montero spoke of a “historic day for the advancement of feminist rights.”
Menstrual leave is not a common regulation.
There is no comparable provision in German law.
In Taiwan, women can only stay at home three days a year and only get 50 percent of their salary.
In South Korea, employers have to give their female employees one day off a month if requested, but the law does not regulate who pays the employee’s salary.
To take menstrual leave, female workers in Spain require a doctor’s note.
The duration of the leave from work is, in principle, unlimited.
According to the law, it depends on how severe the menstrual pain is and how long it lasts.
The state covers the costs.
