Male academics at Leicester University urged to say the word ‘menopause’ three times a day to be in solidarity with female colleagues.

A piece published on the website of Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them), the political party of which I’m the chairman, in August 2018:

Our thanks to Danuta for this. The start of the piece:

Repeating the word ‘menopause’ three times a day at work is enough to show solidarity with female colleagues, men have been told.

The University of Leicester is trying to encourage middle-aged male academics to open up and talk about the taboo subject.

Dr Andrea Davies, from the university’s School of Business, organises the monthly Leicester Menopause Café, where male and female colleagues are encouraged to come together and chat about the middle-aged phenomena.

She also puts together menopause roadshows at the institution and says workplaces need to become more menopause-friendly.
