Breaking The Taboo

Breaking the taboo

GenM regard you all as champions of the menopause, and champions of change. There’s so much hard work going on to help more people understand the menopause and recognise the 48 associated symptoms earlier, so more women can get the support they need to thrive during this pivotal time in their lives.

Whether they’re responsible for running the site or shouting about the menopause on social media, the following individuals and groups all have one thing in common – they’re helping to improve the menopause experience and normalise the conversation.

GenM applaud, salute and totally support everything you’re doing.

No one person alone can drive real change for ‘the change’. But together we can, and we will.

Collectively, we are a voice too loud to ignore.

Joe Duffy

The show had such an overwhelming response in terms of phone-ins and social media support that he made it a regular feature. The broadcaster now takes calls from his listeners to discuss their personal experiences, shining a light on the menopause taboo and bringing it to peoples’ attention.
