  1. Hi, I hope you are well. I have just started reading a book ‘Exposed’ by Mark Schapiro, published by Chelsea Green Publishing in the US. I would definitely recommend you get it from the library or buy it. I met the author last year at the Centre for Investigative Journalism summer school at City University London. A weekend of interesting lectures and making contacts so I would also suggest you may be interested in attending this year. Would you like to become involved in the parliamentary meetings into teratogens and UK regulation, law and care? Let me know. Can’t make any promises but I did raise the issue of DES at the meeting with Health Minister Norman Lamb last autumn and DES victims were not represented in person. Best wishes for the new year and thanks for all your relevant articles and blog. Emma Friedmann 0116 2200486 07739 411 373 Date: Mon, 13 Jan 2014 21:57:59 +0000 To:

    1. Dear Emma, Thank you for your kind invitation to become involved in the parliamentary meetings into teratogens and UK regulation, law and care. Sounds really interesting! We can’t promise anything since we are raising awareness of the DES cause on a voluntary basis as and when time allow us (juggling with work, family life, and other commitments) but this is definitely something we would consider supporting in one way or another so please do keep us in the loop. As per the book, sounds like a very interesting read! Thanks for bringing it to my attention. I will try to see if I can get a copy from our local library. Best wishes for the New Year to you too! Can’t believe we are already in February! Regards, DES Daughter
