Is Pee a Feminist Issue?
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Elaine Miller (physiotherapist, comedian, mother and reformed incontinent) believes womens health provision is rooted in misogyny. The future is female? Statistically speaking, its a leaky, traumatised, depressed, inactive future for many women. Elaines a pelvic health specialist, and a busy one: one in three women wet themselves, despite the WHO stating that incontinence is 'largely preventable'. The recent mesh disaster highlights that surgery is not necessarily the answer. In short: the evidence is flawed; professionals are poorly informed; physiotherapy is the best solution; pee is most definitely a feminist issue.
