The president of the Community of Madrid, Isabel Díaz Ayuso, has criticized the measure announced by the central government to give women with painful menstruations 100% paid leave: “The only rule that matters to me is the three rule”. “I owe it to the real problems and not to these issues that don’t solve anything,” she added.
Period pain at work is no longer taboo: “I cried because I didn’t know how to tell my boss I couldn’t go”
Ayuso made these statements after attending the inauguration of Alfonso Rueda as president of the Xunta de Galicia. Before the media he attacked the measure that will be included in the new abortion law and that has opened a debate in Spain on the period pains that a part of the women suffer and that become incapacitating to carry out the habitual tasks. The Madrid president has taken the opportunity to extend her criticism to educational content and, as a result of her mention of the rule of three, she added that this is what “they intend to remove from mathematics with a gender perspective.”
He also left a message about politics in general and warned that a new stage is opening in Galician politics and also for Alberto Núñez Feijóo, who has assumed the leadership of the Spanish PP. “This is how it is in politics, life begins every day,” he said. About Rueda he has said that he is a “hard-working” person with a “defined personality” who assumes the Presidency of the Xunta at a “bittersweet” moment for Galicians due to the departure of the previous head of the Galician Government.
