Hot flushes: Menopause history, myths and modern life

20 Mar 2019 17:00 - 19:00

20 Cavendish Square, Marylebone, London, W1G ORN

FREE

In 1936 Marie Stopes argued that 'the "crises" of a woman's life had been much debated by male medical writers, and perhaps the most artificially created crisis had been her "change": the menopause. 



Join us for a taboo-shattering look at the effects of the menopause on women past and present. Louise Foxcroft uses medical and social history to redress the myths and delivers some truths. Debby Holloway explores the role nursing plays in the menopause today, while Kathy Abernethy looks at whether support should be offered to women in the workplace.
