 Encyclopedia: Calendar Girls
Calendar Girls is a British film of 2003, based on the true story of a group of Yorkshire women who produce a nude calendar to raise money for charity, under the auspices of the Women's Institute.

The film is a feel_good comedy based on the emphatically "amateur" status of the eponymous Calendar Girls, in humourous contrast to the professional models who appear in most calendars and pinups.

 Many Hysterectomies Unnecessary, British Study Shows
Around 100,000 British women have a hysterectomy every year, and by the age of 60, one in five has had their womb removed.
Doctors who studied around half the hysterectomies carried out in England, Wales and Northern Ireland in one year in the mid-1990s found that 46 percent were performed on women who complained of excessive monthly bleeding.
According to the British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, hysterectomies could have avoided in between 50 to 75 percent of these cases, with doctors opting instead for a less invasive operation called endometrial ablation.
