Getting Period

Have you ever heard that when women want to take some days off from the workplace coz of getting period, women must show the ‘proof’?

One local newspaper stated that a factory in one district located in West Java Indonesia issued a regulation that to get some days off due to period, female workers must show the proof that they really get their monthly menstruation. It is all related to the effort to improve the productivity target.

A female worker must meet the Personnel Manager and the Production Manager that both happen to be males, and one security guard that happens to be female. The female worker must enter one special room provided with some cotton to take the blood sample. Isn’t it insane? Women are not considered as human beings, they are just like things.

Unluckily, those female workers don’t have power to protest coz they are afraid to be laid off.
