Statements

Gender inclusivity

Being inclusive is absolutely critical to the success of our campaign.

We use the terms “women”, “staff”, “employees” and “people affected by the menopause” to reflect the fact that whilst most people who experience the menopause are women, some trans men and non-binary people experience the menopause too. We also recognise that some trans women may experience similar symptoms at times. Employers must ensure workplaces are inclusive and sensitive to the needs of all people, including those whose gender identity does not align with the sex they were assigned at birth.
