Reproductive rights face increasing threats no matter what actions President Biden takes | Letters – Chicago Sun-Times

While I am excited for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to usher in a progressive agenda, the crushingly repressive regime in place for the last four years wont disappear overnight. Despite significant gains in health care access under the Affordable Care Act, the federal policies of the Trump administration, paired with decreased federal funding, have significantly eroded equal access to health care.

Despite menopause being a process that half the population are directly impacted by, it remains a taboo topic, shrouded in mystery and stigma. Weve encountered the change that occurs when a person experiences their last period, normally between the ages of 45 and 55, predominantly through a plethora of stereotypes: the cantankerous and unhinged older woman grappling with mood swings and hot flushes. Work has taken place in attempts to demystify menopause, from parliament debating NHS menopause services to Menopause: The Musical embarking on a tour across the UK and Ireland in 2019
