I bled to death six days a month. The pain was excruciating. I didn't know I had endometriosis for decades. When I was a young woman we gutted it out. We didn't take medication for pain and bloating.
To me, this is wonderful news for Italian women. Ever so slowly we are making progress.

Just wanted to say - excellent post and points.
When I reflect on the hoops to jump through, the phone tree of calls to make sure everyone is on the same page, the updates to whatever contract, or explaining to a medical staff member what the situation is (after ALREADY TELLING FOUR OTHER PEOPLE WHO WORK THERE!) ... it is phenomenal to me that most people are not completely subsumed into madness with the details.

I tried not to laugh, sick time. Most places refuse to give cost of living raises. I don't see generous anything unless it is cuts in benefits.

I know y'all are going to shoot me for pointing this out, but we ladies want to know why there is a so-called pay gap ...
We take off lots of time to have kids, lots of time to deal with our kids, and now we want up to three days every month to deal with our cycles too?
And that's not counting the standard time off package our male counterparts are getting.
Let's be real. We aren't going the same work because we aren't there as much. And no, I am not complaining.

Point 1; You aren't even Italian.
Point 2; You are not a woman.
Point 3; We work at a maxipad factory in Pittsburg.
But you do look great in that dress.
