A Twitter user @its_tobilola has proposed that women deserve menstrual leave.

Menstrual leave is a type of leave where a woman may have the option to take paid or unpaid leave from her employment if she is menstruating and is unable to go to work because of this. … Menstrual leave is controversial because it is seen by some as a criticism of women’s work efficiency or as sexism.

A lot of twitter folks especially the ladies agreed with him while others also said it’s of no use.
