Push 360 declares menstruation holiday from this day. PUSH announced 360 days of leave with the belief that menstrual leave is necessary even in the workplace. The nine women who are currently working in PUSH and who are coming will be eligible for leave, as is applicable to universities in Kerala.

Women at Push 360 are entitled to equal leave for menopausal health care. I see this as a proud decision for Push 360, which has been in the ad-branding industry for over 30 years.
