Equality ensures that the state will take care of the victims due to painful rules and there will be no limit of days.

Latest NewsEquality ensures that the state will take care of the victims due to painful rules and there will be no limit of days.

Losses due to painful regulations will finally be included in the abortion law reform that the government is preparing, these losses will be taken over by the Social Security Service from day one, the specified minimum number of days will not be required, as is the case with other common temporary disabilities and will a fixed period is set. “There are no days, these are the days that every woman needs,” sources in the Ministry of Equality confirm. After the draft of this regulation, which the Ministry of Equality was preparing to present to the Council of Ministers next Tuesday, was leaked on Wednesday, debates and tensions began between the various ministries involved.

The undersecretaries of state met this Thursday afternoon to agree on some of the more contentious articles, and this Friday, these sources confirm that, for now and in terms of losses due to incapacitated menstruation, that agreement has been reached. But there are still other issues that need to be addressed.

The draft of this regulation, to which this newspaper had access, includes menstrual health as part of the right to health, states that it should be equal for all at all levels of health and without distinction by place of residence; and points out that the stereotypes and myths about menstruation that still exist and that make life difficult for women will be fought.

Some of the articles in this area include the free supply of hygiene products needed during menstruation to educational centers, those that offer social services for women at risk of isolation and prison; that these products are gradually included in all dependencies of state bodies; that these products will be delivered to those who need them without any intermediary and will be as sustainable, environmentally friendly and gentle on women’s health as possible.

And finally, another point on which there is still no agreement is the abolition of VAT on certain feminine hygiene products. The Treasury does not want to succumb to the introduction of a zero rate to make the so-called pink rate disappear, but Equality believes that it still has the opportunity to change its mind. “We hope that the Ministry of Finance will be able to revise the pink rate, essential goods. Tampons, compresses and cups, that no one talks about it, but we can’t live without it, these are also things for food and it’s not clear that they are more expensive than some others, besides, it is very affordable in economic terms,” he said On Friday, Angela Rodriguez, Secretary of State for Equality and Against Gender-Based Violence, speaks to reporters in the Balearic Islands, where she is on an official visit.
