Spain has approved plans to become the first European country to introduce unlimited paid menstrual leave in the workplace.

The draft law lets women suffering severe period pain take time off as long as they can provide a doctor's note.

Questions have been asked as to whether we should introduce the same in New Zealand.

Danika Revell is co-founder and CEO of The Period Place charity and joined Mike Hosking.
