Menopause and why it matters

Menopause. It’s not a dirty word or an embarrassing part of growing old. We often face it alone and with little understanding of what is happening to us. We need to change the way we deal with the menopause on so many levels. 

On Thursday 21st October, key voices in the debate come together to discuss why menopause should matter. Joining us to discuss how we make this change are Carolyn Harris MP and leader of the all party group on menopause.

Carolyn says: “The menopause revolution will bring an end to women’s suffering” – an ambitious statement. Also on our panel are Diane Danzebrink, founder of Menopause Support and the national #MakeMenopauseMatter campaign, Kate Muir, journalist and producer of Channel 4’s Davina McCall documentary. 

Joining them are Jo Ilott and Sarah Leroux, nurses working in primary care with a specialist interest in the menopause, Dr Jill Kirby, academic historian at University of Sussex currently engaged in research into the cultural history of menopause in 20th century Britain and Dr Heather Brown, consultant obstetrician & gynaecologist.
