The Monday to Friday work week was created based on cis men’s hormone cycle. If you have testes, your hormone cycle is 24 hours. So you basically have the same amount of energy every day.
If you’re menstruating, your hormone cycle is 28 days and so you’ll have weeks that are higher energy and ENTIRE WEEKS that are lower energy. In perimenopause, this gets more sporadic but is still not 24 hours.
You’re expected to show up to work with the same amount of energy every day. Except if you have female anatomy, you don’t have the same amount of energy every day.
This is painful. In this episode, I rant about this and other injustices.
