There shouldn’t be any shame or stigma attached to applying for a period leave. You should feel free to tell people on internal groups, or emails that you are on your period leave for the day,’ says founder and CEO Deepinder Goyal to staff
Online restaurant guide and food ordering platform Zomato’s move to introduce up to ten days of ‘period leaves’ for all women employees is facing both bouquets and brickbats on Twitter. Zomato said the move was necessitated to build a more inclusive work culture in the organisation. “At Zomato, we want to foster a culture of trust, truth and acceptance. Starting today, all women (including transgender people) at Zomato can avail up to 10 days of period leaves in a year,” Zomato founder and CEO Deepinder Goyal said in a blog post on Saturday.
Here are a few reactions on Twitter of people praising Zomato for removing the ‘stigma’ attached to menstruation.
