Unless you're one of those women who just doesn't feel her period (and if so, who are you and how did you do that?), at least one day a month you're showing up to work glaring at every man who never has to work through cramps. 

Bloody tired of working on their periods.

A UK-based company serendipitously named Coexist is sick of coexisting at work with tired and crampy women, so they are giving them paid time off to let their bloated bodies rest at home. This is how it would have been for centuries if men got their periods. 

Bex 'N' Effect

Bex Baxter, one of the directors at Coexist, said:

I have managed many female members of staff over the years and I have seen women at work who are bent over double because of the pain caused by their periods. Despite this, they feel they cannot go home because they do not class themselves as unwell. And this is unfair. At Coexist we are very understanding. If someone is in pain—no matter what kind—they are encouraged to go home.
