Eleanor Morgan joins Polly Shute for an exclusive interview in our Facebook community
BY SOPHIE GRIFFITHS
DIVA has launched a series of DIVA Community exclusive and live Zoom chats with some of our lovely friends and supporters called #TheRileyInterviews.
Tomorrow (17 November) at 8pm as part of the series, Polly Shute will be hosting guest spot where she will get to chat with psychologist and author, Eleanor Morgan.
Eleanor Morgan is the author of Hormonal and Anxiety For Beginners. Her third book is on sexuality and will be published in 2022. She has written and interviewed extensively for The Guardian, The Observer, The Times, the Independent, GQ, Harper’s Bazaar, ELLE, Vogue, VICE, and others. In 2016 she completed an MSc in Psychology and is now training as a psychologist. She lives in North London with her Staffie, Peg.
Hormonal: A Conversation About Women’s Bodies, Mental Health and Why We Need to Be Heard is also our DIVA Book Club read for this month!
“Combining her own experiences with extensive research and expert contributions, Eleanor Morgan explores the relationship between the female body, the female mind and the ways in which women’s bodies are being medicalised. Hormonal explores everything from contraception to PMS, in relation to anxiety, depression and taboos about hysteria and the ‘hormonal’ woman. It is a compelling portrait of the modern landscape of women and health, showing us how to navigate stigma and misinformation.”
Launched over the summer as a way of bringing the lez/bi community closer together with everything that’s happening in the world right now, the Facebook-based, digital hangout DIVA Community has grown to a membership of over 7,000 women and allies, hailing from all around the globe. Pretty impressive, eh? So we thought it’s time to give back to you wonderful lot with #TheRileyInterviews.
