Italy May Soon Become The First Western country To Offer Menstrual Leave For Working Women

Published on 29 March, 2017 at 1:17 am By

The Italian parliament has started discussing a law that offers “menstrual leave” for working women.

If the bill is passed, the female workers, who experience painful periods, will soon be granted three days of paid leave each month. The bill was presented on March 13 by four lawmakers, all women, from the ruling democratic party.

It’s not the first time this kind of legislation has been proposed, countries like Japan and Indonesia are already allowing women time off.

A women’s magazine, Marie Claire, described it as “a standard-bearer of progress and social sustainability”. It is a positive step to help working women who suffer from cramps.



Also, Italy has female-friendly labour laws. Five months of paid maternity leave are mandatory both for employers and employees.

Some believe that this bill may backfire. Thought it could help solve a real issue for Italian women, but it may become another excuse for employers not to hire women in the first place.
