Media Interviews

Diane was a visitor to Kat Orman’s show on BBC Radio Oxford on October 19th, phoning in to tell her story as part of a discussion with other callers and studio guests. The show can be heard on demand here.

 

 

 

****************************************

Diane Danzebrink and Dr. Louise Newson took part in a live Channel 5 News discussion segment for World Menopause Day, hosted by Sian Williams.

The menopause caused some of the women involved in the panel discussion to lose their memory or even consider taking their own life – they were sharing their experiences to help end the stigma on World Menopause Day.

Diane commented after the discussion: ” This is why I wanted to start Menopause Support” .

****************************************

With calls for women going through the menopause to receive special treatment at work, the “Lorraine” morning programme on ITV  invited Diane to discuss the life-changing effects it can have on women and whether more should be done to help.

Presenter Christine Bleakley was joined on the sofa by Lorraine Hegarty, who believes the menopause cost her the job she loved, and Diane who is founder of Menopause Support UK.

Dr Hilary Jones was also on hand to answer  questions from viewers about menopause in his live open surgery.

The interview can be seen on the Lorraine website.

********************************************

The Daily Mail took up the cudgels with Facebook over the banning of our menopause workshop ad for the event coming up in October – but although the social media platform admitted it had made a mistake, no apology has to date been received by Menopause Support.

The Mail story can be seen here. The story has also been covered by the Wilts and Gloucestershire Standard, which circulates in Tetbury, the location of our 1st October event.

********************************************

Facebook did not defend their decision to ban our advert for an upcoming workshop on Menopause in Tetbury in October when the BBC’s Victoria Derbyshire invited them to appear on her morning news and current affairs show. Instead a former company employee was left to defend the platform. Di Danzebrink was there to take part in the show, and spoke forcefully about her anger that Facebook arbitrarily banned the ad because it contained the word “libido”.  Followers of the Menopause Support’s Facebook page posted some angry responses and the story has been widely shared.

Di’s interview can be seen below.
