    Menstrual leave is a leave when girls and women are going through menstruation and having pain due to which they can’t go for work therefore they may prefer menstrual leave it can be paid or unpaid as per the company policy. Because of the menstrual leave policy it has become disagreement and discrimination against girls and women. As per the research, very few of the countries has menstrual leave policy. In india, there are companies like Gozoop and cultural Machine who gives menstrual leave for female employees for the first day of the menstruation. Indian Company Zomato who delivers food also have the policy of menstrual leave for female employees. It is necessary that menstrual leave policy should be their in companies because some of the women while going through menstruation they may suffer from dysmenorrhea due to which it causes more pain. In our society, it is stigma to have menstrual leave their are many few of them who supports for menstrual leave policy whereas other people will start discrimination against women. Companies needs to apply menstrual leave policy because women has to work sitting at a place for 8 to 9 hours and while menstruating it becomes difficult for women to goes through with pain. Society need to remove the stigma about menstrual leave and atleast support for women’s menstrual leave policy every month.

    Menstrual leave is the leave which is taken by the women when they are on periods which is paid or can be unpaid it depends on person to person, all women menstruate once a month. During first four days of week women faces immense pain cramp nausea, cramps, and body ache she is not able to focus anything but still, they have to come for work because very few companies which provide the menstrual leave which is not good and people need to think that how one work so the company needs to give menstruation leave or keep a choice if women are comfortable for working or they want to take leave look we all nothing is more important than health unpaid leave company cut if women take holiday so they force their body to work it can affect the mental health one behaves restless and anger for no reason and it is normal, that’s why a company need to make the policy. Employees are an asset you can’t force them to work when they are in pain how can they give their 100 percent may be the company can give the option of work from home if they feel better or just attend the work calls and check emails, and trust me many females would love to work with the company even if the salary is low because you are caring about their health first. Many other countries have started adopting the policy of menstrual so all the females are very happy because of this.
