Ibn Taymiyyah states that this would not apply in regard to women who traveled long distances. He believes that those women are allowed to do the tawwaf while on menses. That fatwa is now widely followed for traveling women from faraway places. The general ruling still applies to women who do not travel long distances to Mecca.
