The number of painful experiences a woman has to go through are more than we can count. However, the pain on the first day during ” that time of the month ” is beyond a man’s capacity to comprehend. Yes. The first day of period. The day when the ovaries are at war with every thing below the belt. This is also the day when the pain is tagged along by uncooperative hormones.
No women ever, would want to move out of the comfy of pajamas and the warmth of the covers on this fateful day. Yet, most women have to and if they complain, it becomes a tantrum for others. Perhaps the monthly routine should make women habitual of the torment and they shouldn’t complain but, honestly, the pain doesn’t subside.
Recognizing this pain and the taboo around it, Culture Machine Media Pvt. Ltd. has initiated a new leave policy, called First Day of Period Leave, where women can take a leave on the first day of their period, which is usually when the pain is at its worst.
This video was filmed in secrecy featuring the women of Culture Machine, who were oblivious of this new change, at the time of the shoot. They were told for the first time on camera and this is how they reacted.
