Cycle of Change; Understanding Menopause
Purpose: Half of the population will go through this major natural life change but so many of us are not prepared and don’t know what to expect. How we talk about menopause has to change. We created Cycle of Change: Understanding Menopause, a short film to empower women and share real-life experiences from all stages of the menopause transition.
Outcome: With 20 hours of interviews condensed into 5 minutes, ‘Cycle of change’ shares over 450 women’s experiences at all stages of the menopause transition, aiming to to prepare women with understanding and positive advice. Made through workshops, surveys, research and collaboration with menopause experts, Diane Danzebrink and Hazel Hayden.

Feedback: “So many of my friends are in denial that it is happening. Films like this will hopefully help them realise the symptoms and seek help." Participant
