Leading Doctor Wants Women to Get Monthly Paid Leave for This

Gedis Grudzinskas, a leading professor of obstetrics and gynecology, believes women should get a paid menstrual leave every month. The practice has already been implemented in Japan and Indonesia, and Canada is eyeing he controversial policy.

Mr Grudzinskas, formerly of St Bartholomew’s Hospital in London, thinks a paid menstrual leave would boost the productivity and motivation of women in the workplace. Grudzinskas is a leading international figure in the field of Reproductive Medicine, Surgery and Obstetrics.

The doctor told MailOnline, “Some women feel really grotty when menstruating. Coming into work is a struggle and they feel lousy. When you feel like that, it’s harder to take pride in your work or perform as well. This is about employers being sensible and aware.”
