A piece by an unnamed journalist on p.24 of Today’s Times (we can’t find it in the online edition):
A police force will open “crying rooms” and provide extra desk fans for female officers going through the menopause. Nottinghamshire police has introduced the policy after Sue Fish (pictured, above), a former chief constable, found women were leaving the force after suffering menopausal symptoms. Davies Davies, a Tory MP, called the plan “insulting to women officers” who “confront very tough situations daily”. [J4MB: From what I’ve seen, female officers hold back from “very tough situations”, letting their male colleagues – on the same pay – sort them out. Likewise prison officers. Whenever a group of them runs towards a riot, the men are at the front, the women trail behind them.]
