Elaine Miller (physiotherapist, comedian, mother and reformed incontinent) believes women’s health provision is rooted in misogyny.  The “future is female”? Statistically speaking, it’s a leaky, traumatised, depressed, inactive future for many women. Elaine’s a pelvic health specialist, and a busy one: 1:3 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.
