Raising Brave: Hair loss and Online Hate - Claire Balding

Season 5, Ep. 8

Whether it’s in the classroom or the football pitch, we tell our children to be kind.

Not to bully.

We also tell them to do what we do.

To see us as their role models.


And yet. As we’ve seen after football games, or in workplaces, or… online anonymously in groups and gossip sites, adults, women, mothers are sharing hate. 


In this episode Sinead talks to Claire Balding best known for sharing her experience of hair loss and creating Trua a clinic supporting hair regrowth, to talk about her experience of online hate, boundaries being crossed and strangers making her feel afraid.


How when she checks their profile they are often mothers themselves and how it was in fact this weight of keeping up with motherhood, the not being able to admit to needing a break, or asking for help or showing the world that it was even a little bit hard which contributed to her alopecia and hair loss in the first place. I understand this fear of being judged or shamed or cancelled or thought of as less. 


But I know we are raising brave.

So we need to do better because hashtag bekind is not enough. 

If not for each other, but because our kids are watching our every step.
