The Daily Mail reports that middle-aged female police officers are being provided with “crying rooms” at work for when they feel overcome with emotion during menopause.
Not being a female myself, I’ll never really know the pain and heartache associated with menstruation or menopause, but I know from experience that when a woman is enduring these times, it’s prudent for one and all to avoid any unnecessary provocation.
The police chiefs behind the crying room measure have been criticized for “patronizing” female staff, proving yet again one is often damned if you do and damned if you don’t when it comes to “reasonable accommodation.”
Even so, other employers have introduced such policies in order to both retain staff and avoid being sued for discrimination, which brings me to my idea.
Watch as I explain my idea for a worldwide TEAL Ribbon Campaign to further bring about awareness of these lady issues.
TEAL is not only a colour but the word itself serves as an acronym, namely, (T)ime of (E)motional (A)nxiety for the (L)adies.
My awareness campaign can help ladies who don’t want to be bothered during their Time of Emotional Anxiety, and also gives the rest of us an early warning mechanism!
