I recently completed a book on Midlife women and Menopause. It will be published over the coming months. Having researched menopause over the last three years I believe there is a need for a new story around this time in women’s lives. The old story has limited disempowered and disenfranchised menopausal women for decades. The silence and stigma has to be removed in order for the new story to emerge. The growing midlife women’s movement in the UK is gaining a lot of traction thanks to media coverage, politicians and celebrities joining the menopause conversation. Societal and cultural change occurs slowly. Persistence and the continuation of women amplifying their voice will ensure change occurs.
