Female Staff To Wear A Badge In Work When Having Their Monthly Period Plan- Backfires For Company

A Japanese department store has come under criticism for asking its female employees to wear badges letting people know they are on their monthly period.

Staff who work at Michi Kake store in Osaka in Japan, which is known for selling products related to female sexual and menstrual health, have been asked to wear a badge with a little cartoon called Seiri Chan, a name loosely translated as Miss Period.

The badges, which are not compulsory to wear but highly encouraged , were introduced by company chiefs to encourage staff and customers to bond at the store and to break down the ongoing stigma around women’s periods.

However, an executive of the company concerned has revealed that the plan has back fired and received “many complaints from the public” adding: “Some of them concerned harassment, and that was definitely not our intention.”
