This panel event explores the new visibility of menopausal life and politics, in mainstream, social and countercultural media, typified by Davina McCall’s recent TV documentary and various high-profile campaigns. What do we, should we make of this? Whose interests does this reflect, and what relationship does it bear to the long history of feminist struggle for equal healthcare and bodily recognition?
Sussex students and staff including Ali Ramsey, Sharon Neal, Jill Kirby and Cloe Jewell will share ideas, following a short film screening, which is part of a doctoral creative and critical practice research project on the topic of menopause in the media, past and present.
