Some men might want the first day of deer hunting season off. No comments please I know I am being naughty. Obviously women have a lot of clout in the modern workplace, ask your manager for accommodations. If you are already the manager talk to faculties and make it happen. Women have been calling in sick since forever it's a given they need more days. The workplace has already adjusted to women's needs. Sick days aren't always counted. Unless you work for a jerk, can't help you there.

We have discovered that we don't need to be in the office everyday. That is an alternative as well. Unfortunately we now have a two class work environment. Those who can zoom and those who can't. Sad.
