Abstract

This panel session aims to break taboos around the hidden gender inequalities of maternity, breastfeeding, period poverty and menopause, with a summary of current initiatives in this area followed by Q&A and a wider discussion on the subject. It will include details of: a collaboration between Hey Girls, Wire Media and Edinburgh Napier University that responded to the Scottish Government initiative to provide free, accessible sanitary products for all girls and women in Schools, Colleges and Universities; how the University of Edinburgh and Imperial College London are attempting to promote menopause-friendly workplaces and address the impact this has on women staff; and how university policy at practice at Abertay around student pregnancy has been informed by the narratives that emerged when investigating the student experience of the perinatal period.
