The public petition N°1865 proposes to introduce two days off work per month for women who get their period.

The petition has already gathered 4,502 signatures and will still be up for vote for another 22 days. Once the signatures have been validated, the petition will thus be discussed in the Chamber.

The petition underlines that the initiative is not to be taken as a guaranteed excuse to get off work, but rather represent a chance for women to chose individually, and not force themselves to work while experiencing pain.
