Menstrual Pain:-
A PIL has been filed on 10th January 2023 (Tuesday) before the honorable Supreme Court requesting the Court to introduce a norm for workplaces mandating them to provide menstrual pain leaves to female employees. The case is titled Shailendra Mani Tripathi v. Union of India and Ors. Two Requests made by the PIL
  1. Mandatory  pain leaves to working women and female students
  2. Judicious implementation of Maternity Benefit Act (Section 14) by appointment of inspectors
Arguments of the PIL demanding Paid Menstrual Pain Leaves Examples of Companies providing menstrual pain leaves have been highlighted through this petition such as Swiggy, Ivipanan, Byju’s, Zomato, Magzter, Mathrubhumi, ARC, Gozoop and FlyMyBiz. The PIL has also drawn authority from a study conducted by University College, London which has authoritatively laid down that the pain experienced by menstruating women is equivalent to the pain experienced during a heart attack and hence, paid menstrual pain leaves must be provided. Further, the petition has also expressed the state of women during menstruation which causes reduced efficacy at work and harm to mental health as well, thus, demanding paid menstrual pain leaves. Menstrual Pain Why was the Supreme Court approached for Menstrual Pain Leaves? The PIL has made out a remarkable observation regarding the will of the legislature. It pointed out that in 2018, the Women's Sexual, Reproductive and Menstrual Rights Bill had been introduced by Mr. Shashi Tharoor and further in 2022, another Bill, the Menstruation Benefits Bill, 2017 (which included provisions for menstrual pain leaves) had been taken up for discussion in the Legislative Assembly, however, the Parliament regarded this topic as an “unclean” one and dropped the discussion. This showed clear disinterest of the legislature in the matter of  pain leaves as well and therefore, the Supreme Court is the last resort for the petitioners.   Do visit our website for such more news articles where we share The True Stories of The World, The Topstoriesworld
