Should difficult menstruation be a valid, indeed accepted, reason to apply for an extension for an essay, or similar?Initially this seemed to me to be a bit of a radical, out-there, idea, but within a mere 30 seconds I'd changed my mind. For those women whose periods are accompanied by severe cramps, pain, headaches, discomfort and other un-niceties, why shouldn't they be able to get an extension in the same way as an asthmatic who was struggling with a high pollen count?
I guess part of the issue comes with the necessity to get a medical certificate to back the claim for an extension up? Not sure how many of our readers have assignments that they have to submit by deadlines, usually in the context of study. Whether you are in this boat or paddle a different waka, I'd be interested in your views.
