Interesting piece on BBC Breakfast this morning.

So delighted to see that menopause and the effect it has on women in the workplace is getting some decent coverage.

Worth a look.

    that's really interesting, although I do think that even though they say there are things that can be put in place its not always that easy, especially for someone that has a male manager as its very rare for them to understand and even acknowledge.

    I like the fact though that all of a sudden a lot of programmes are now mentioning menopause. it was even spoken about on EastEnders last week :)

    unfortunately menopause and mental health seem to be taboo subjects for a lot of people including GPs.

    I agree! It's great that menopause is being heard all over the place.

    What I did find awful, were some of the comments underneath the article. From other women to women! If we can't support each other as women, then we've got no chance of encouraging the wider world to support us! Some of the comments were downright horrible and so unnecessary! ☹️
