M Purver WOMAN 5 smaller

Back in 2017 I was commissioned to produce a sculpture to help to highlight the problem of women dying in childbirth and the results of the WOMAN Trial (World Maternal Antifibrinolytic Trial). The International research study WOMAN shows that a low-cost, drug called tranexamic acid could save the lives of thousands of women a year if given quickly to new mothers who suffer deadly bleeding. Severe bleeding after childbirth, or post-partem haemorrhage, kills around 100,000 new mothers each year (or one woman approximately every 6 minutes).

I was pleased to hear that yesterday the Prime Minister Theresa May pledged to eradicate all avoidable plastic waste in the UK by 2042. The commitment is part of the government's 25-year plan to improve the natural environment and I hope it is the first step towards a more robust attack on plastic on a governmental level. (Says my optimistic side, as I am tired of all those negative vibes...)
