Whoa; some of the comments from men though
Was looking for the brilliant Josephine March but can't see her...

Well said.

Fantastic, as ever. Thanks for the share token.

I'll add a link to Camilla Long's column in the Sunday Times too (if it's relevant to one of the other threads you can just c&p it)

This was in the Times Magazine today - I'm so confused - who is their target audience here - true it's a lady doctor but hmmmm

It's not the fault of the Times how some women's health organisations are currently obscuring the clarity of their messaging.

No true. I was just a bit shocked at it - it could apply to men - bloated tummy, feeling full, needing to wee a lot , in fact it is pointing to prostate as much as ovarian cancer.

Who is the amazing Josephine marsh? Does she have a Twitter account?

It’s a great article. So depressing though. I know giving up is not the answer but I’m feeling so overwhelmed by it all at the moment. Nothing seems to change.

I don’t know if Josephine March is on Twitter but she does a lot of really excellent comments on Times articles.

The name comes from Jo March of the Little Women books.

Brilliant article. Thank you so much Janice Turner. (and Jess Philips)
This especially is one to mention to your MPs to support the Centre for Women’s Justice’s proposal:

+CWJ wants a separate channel for police partners to report abuse away from boys’-club meddling.) No wonder that since 2009 at least 15 serving or ex-police officers have killed women*.

This statistic is from the femicide census, the annual list read in parliament by Jess Phillips compiled by the campaigner Karen Ingala Smith from news reports. She does this because, astonishingly, the government doesn’t keep data on how many women are killed by men. The first of many acts police need to perform to win back women’s trust is create a femicide league table showing which forces have brought women’s deaths down. And spare us that sly obfuscation “gender-based violence”.

Always good to draw MPs’ attention to the Centre for Women’s Justice who continue their excellent legal fights on behalf of all of us. Flowers
