With the support of @carolynharris24 #Menopause has been an important topic of conversation in Westminster.
@overthebmoon @Theramex brought the #MenoVest into @UKParliament today which simulates ‘Hot Flushes’. Great turnout cross-party showing support.

🧵#Menopause has taken Parliament by storm!

@overthebmoon and @Theramex bought the #MenoVest into Parliament today which simulates Hot Flushes!

We had a fantastic turnout from colleagues of all parties wanting to show their support and solidarity

This attempt to overrule the people of Wales’ is a cynical power grab from a government that is imploding.

They are overreaching on their mandate.

@gmb_union members will fight it at every step

Nikunj Upadhyay from @WatesGroup had a few words of support for us all.

“We need more research - there’s some, but it’s certainly not enough. We need more men involved in this conversation.
And if anyone says you’re talking too much about menopause, good; talk more!”

We are beyond excited to announce we're now a Community Interest Company!!!

This is a huge step forward in our fight to help everyone #KnowYourMenopause and we're so excited as to what the future will hold

🧵After hearing from hundreds of women, going through #Menopause, telling us of their #HRT shortage stories, I have found that many of you are STILL having to go back to get GP's to prescribe alternatives to your out of stock treatment, rather than Pharmacists issuing via theSSP

Today is #NationalBingoDay - so last week I visited @MeccaBingo Swansea, calling a charity flyer raising money for the Ukrainian Humanitarian Apeeal. Mecca have been integral for #EveryoneDeserves and do valued work in the community, so I am more than happy to support them

Only 19% of respondents are male. @DHSCgovuk is asking men to take this seriously and participate.

One day in Parliament.

Menopause Mandate presented their aims to press and MPs in the Jubilee Room at the House of Commons and Carolyn Harris MP, also conducted a menopause debate in Westminster Hall.

Cardiovascular disease is one of the leading causes of death for postmenopausal women – and the risk of heart attack is around five times higher after the menopause than before. Women who have a heart attack are more likely than men to die. https://bit.ly/3HQt3R8. @TheBHF

Some hard hitting words from Professor Henrietta Bowden-Jones OBE.

Women who have been excelling in their jobs for over 30 years feeling confused and lost because of the lack of awareness around peri-menopause.

Thank you for your support Prof. Bowden-Jones

@HBowdenJonesOBE

The Tories now face a credible Labour party: a government-in-waiting with a plan to deliver on the country’s demands.

We will not shy away from that responsibility, duck those challenges or fail to grasp the opportunities our country has.

An article from ⁦@Dr_Ellie⁩ which fails to note the long-term benefits of body-identical HRT - reducing osteoporosis, colon cancer, Type-2 diabetes, heart disease and dementia.The scientific studies are all in my book: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Everything-Need-About-Menopause-afraid/dp/1398505641 https://www.mailplus.co.uk/edition/health/mos-health/195602/are-some-women-taking-hrt-they-dont-really-need

“Women are pushed from pillar to post for the right HRT”

Prof Claire Anderson, President of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society @rpharms raises a good point.

There is so much confusion surrounding HRT and if you decide you want to take it, you can’t access it.

We need change..

An honour to attend @SwanseaCouncil #ArmedForcesDay celebrations. To thank our forces and veterans and their families for the service they have made in keeping us safe.

At a @carolynharris24 event on the menopause @mariellaf1 said her next campaign was going to be on periods. Well this is 10/10 from @owenslot - https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/wimbledon-cannot-turn-a-blind-eye-on-period-issue-255lqv2fb

Because our @WelshLabour Government reached a deal with rail workers, unions, and operators, Transport for Wales staff have not been on strike.

But our rail network is still in a state of chaos, because @BorisJohnson and @GrantShapps refuse to come to the table and do the same.

A wonderful celebration of #ArmedForcesDay where we give thanks to those serving, and our veterans, for keeping our country safe. They are a valued part of our Swansea community and we are grateful.

Today, on #ArmedForcesDay we thank our Armed Forces for keeping us safe and for their service on the front line.

A Labour government would make sure our veterans get a better deal with fair access to the housing and the services they deserve.

Thank you @BaillieGifford @EdinburghWomen for inviting me to talk about menopause. SO impressed to see companies taking it seriously and putting supportive measures in place, and to hear women's experiences. @carolynharris24 @mariellaf1 #crackingthemenopause

This is a devastating step backwards for women's rights in the United States.

Every woman who needs one should have the right to a safe and legal abortion.

Solidarity with every woman affected by this cruel decision. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-61928898

PLUS Kalush Orchestra joins me from #glastonburyfestival2022 AND @carolynharris24 tells me her incredible life story - scarred by personal tragedy but proud of her many achievements as a campaigning MP. Tune in from 4-7.

The message today is clear, Wakefield is the birthplace of the next @UKLabour Government 🌹

A massive well done to @simonlightwood, the team and all those who campaigned and supported. We all feel so proud to be part of this movement

Wakefield’s win will go down in history, @SimonLightwood.

I’m so proud of our Labour Party and the changes we’ve made to be a government in waiting.

Very well said Penny Lancaster, Menopause is still a stigma in lots of communities and cultures. Education and awareness is now slowly trickling through.

Us coming together and discussing this in a very public forum is hopefully breaking down these barriers.💗

We’re now a @SwanseaCouncil backed project and are now over 60% funded. Fantastic! We’re on the final stretch and have only £2k more to raise before this great idea becomes a reality. Please share and pledge. @BBCWales http://Spacehive.com/positivenewsswansea
