I’ve seen things you won’t believe. I have seen the ships burning beyond Orion. I saw the Equality Secretary of the PSOE ask if women should be guaranteed the right to take days off from work because of painful periods.
Women need adequate research, diagnosis and treatment to address the problems associated with our reproductive system. The suggestion that the rule itself requires special consideration can be both unhelpful and harmful.

I have seen the Deputy Secretary of the UGT take the side of employers and oppose workers being given the right to use employers’ arguments to rise up in public debate against the advancement of labor rights. I saw it all, except for the ships in Orion, because the proposal comes from the Ministry of Equality. I saw all this because the proposal comes from Irene Montero, not PSOE.
Sectarianism corrodes public debate to such an extent that it is impossible to criticize a formation like the Podemos when it fails to achieve its goals, and at the same time praise it enthusiastically when, as in the case of the Ministry of Equality, it achieves historic goals. and very ambitious. It can be said that Podemos acts as a cradle for spoiled children when it focuses on their internal disputes and at the same time recognizes the progress they are making in terms of social justice. Nothing happens, don’t tear your clothes, grow up and accept criticism. Critical thinking and responsibility for promoting social rights in politicians and media figures who do not allow themselves to recognize the achievement of the opposite side as the simple fact of not being able to benefit from it, is also not abundant. In the last CIS, citizens are tired of the polarization and toxicity of public debate, but it does not seem that the actors operating in the field of public opinion are ready to rationally exercise criticism and think only about allowing themselves to be driven away by the behavior that will most be welcomed by yours. tribe.
Women cannot be denied the right just because Podemos asks for it, because Irene Montero proposes it. Such is the unfortunate conclusion that remains from the unfortunate debate that arose from the publication of the decree, which puts the importance of menstrual health in the public debate. There is no rational, labor, social, or economic argument supporting a refutation from a progressive point of view of a measure of progress of such depth for women, for their rights, and for the visibility of their concrete and hushed reality. Paid leave from day one for women in need of rest due to painful menstruation will cost 43 million euros per year. To put the costs in perspective, it is enough to show that the Aquatic Center, which was half built for the Madrid Olympics, which we never had, and that Begoña Villasis wants us to cost 92 million euros again. Esperanza Aguirre’s “City of Justice”, which was never finished and is now a metal mushroom on land near Zendal, cost 105 million euros. These two unfinished works of Caña’s Madrid liberalism alone would have been enough to pay for this labor right of the workers for more than four years. But we are talking about the rejection of oneself by the system and the establishment of any right as a stigma.
Neo-liberal thought, which remains closed not only in the right, but also in an important part of the Spanish social democracy, which has much more in common with social liberalism than with socialism, has always been suspected of influencing the behavior of workers. In the case that concerns us, this suspicion of the working class is exacerbated by the scarlet letter inherent in the woman we deal with in our patriarchal societies. Sick leave and absenteeism are one of the main elements of the business story against the trust in the working class, indicating that the absence of an employee occurs not because his health is endangered and the doctor gives an exemption, but because they people are vagrants who pretend they miss work. It is expected that this is a message from the authorities against the acquisition of labor rights by thousands of women with unbearable pain due to menstruation, but it is surprising, disgusting and disappointing that these messages are being conveyed by members of the PSOE and the slave of their union only because the proposal was put forward by the ministry headed by Irene Montero .
