A South African woman and her husband have introduced paid menstrual leave for their female employees.
Sharing the latest development decision on Twitter, the lady revealed she’s very happy about the paid menstruation leave for women.
Generally, most women often experience menstruation cramps which often results to abdominal pain or discomfort in certain areas of their bodies.
Apparently the couple have considered such symptoms very important for female staff to treat at home which led to the decision of the paid leave.
The businesswoman, identified as Gloria Dhlamini-Liebenberg, tweeted,
“My husband and I, have introduced paid menstrual leave for our female employees. This makes me so happy as a woman.”

Her viral tweet has gotten mixed reactions especially from some male Twitter users, who are also demanding equal benefits for the male staff working in the company.
So let’s say i decided to identity as a women one week per month, does that mean i get to benefit from this menstrual leave?

4. 2-3 years later and companies start looking at workers' productivity and realize that women put in less time than men cause of a lot of absent days (menstrual, sickness, pregnancy etc leaves).
5. Companies will hire less women to ensure they get the most out of their workers

You're happy with exploiting men. Imagine working the same job but working more days but still paid the same. That's some empowerment
