Not just “women’s issues”: women’s reproductive health at work


The Work Foundation’s Health at Work Policy Unit is launching the first in a series of papers on gendered health and work issues.  Gender and sex play roles in defining our identity, experience and understanding of the world around us; but, in physiological, socio-economic and cultural terms, our gender and sex can also have an impact on our health and employment prospects.


The first paper on ‘Gender, Sex, Health and Work’ will focus on female reproductive health, and the effect related conditions can have on an individual’s ability to work. This includes conditions such as endometriosis and infertility, as well as life experiences such as the menopause, and how they can be better managed within the workplace. These issues are increasingly gaining attention, and we are seeking to further open up the conversation, and explore how we can reduce disadvantage women may experience in work due to common gynaecological issues.


We will be launching ‘Gender, Sex, Health and Work’ on Monday 5th June at the Work Foundation’s central London offices. To attend the launch, please RSVP via Eventbrite.
