‘Menopause: The Change is Here’

World Menopause Day 2021

To champion World Menopause Day 2021, the British Menopause Society (BMS) has partnered with ITN Productions Industry News to produce a news-style programme Menopause: The Change is Here empowering, supporting and educating women to improve their menopause symptoms as well as protect their long-term health.

Perimenopause and menopause symptoms come in many different forms, forcing an alarming percentage of women to leave their careers due to the physical and mental effects on wellbeing. For so long, stigma has surrounded the menopause, leaving women feeling under-represented and ashamed but now with individuals, health professionals and businesses speaking out and supporting women, change is most certainly here.

Anchored by British journalist and news presenter Louise Minchin from the ITN Studios in London, Menopause: The Change is Here shines a spotlight on the impact menopausal symptoms have on women’s health and careers, addressing the misinformation that still surrounds the subject.

The programme shows viewers how to recognise the diverse symptoms, understand more about the importance of managing hormone health and explore the treatment options available. The programme also explores the vital work being done by leading organisations to ensure women are supported in the workplace, highlighting the new approaches to changes in workplace policy and education.
