The fruit of the menstrual cycle is each one of us, yet contemporary research shows attitudes, experiences and judgements skewing dramatically to the negative, frequently characterised by shame, silence, isolation and a shocking lack of basic information.
This is equally true for menopause.

The purpose of the Chalice Foundation is to challenge negative cultural norms and provide quality – that is fun, positive, wide-ranging and evidence-based – menstrual education for all settings and groups.
Positive menstrual education is for everyone!

I just wanted to say that the sessions on menopause and menstruation were so informative, absolutely fantastic and made me cry a little bit, please pass on my thanks!!!

Thanks for organising the menopause and work event, I found it very interesting and informative and really could relate to a lot of the things that were discussed. Hopefully it can pave the way for positive change for a lot of women of all ages and at different stages of their lives.

Thank you very much for organising yesterday’s conference, it was very informative and hopefully is something that can help start a shift mindset in the workplace re menstruation and menopause.

What a fantastic session! Thank you so much!
