Join us on World Menopause Day for an evening of talks and activities to launch the "Wandering Womb" exhibition at the RCN Library and Heritage Centre.
Try your hand at games and crafts led by the Vagina Museum and the RCN Women’s Health Forum, from ring pessary hoopla to anatomical bunting.

You will also have a chance to view the new exhibition and explore the history of women's health nursing through stories and objects. 

Talks will start from 6pm, when we will be welcoming:

Anne Hanley on the history of gender politics in gynaecological and sexual health nursing.

Tracey Loughran on women's health in post-war magazines.

Katharine Gale on the journey to specialist nurses in gynaecology.

Refreshments will be provided.
