As most people who know me realise- I love talking about menopause.
It was great to join Clare McKenna and Andrea Gilligan on Newstalk talking about my book “Midlife Women Rock: A Menopause Story for a New Generation”
We discussed lots about perimenopause and menopause. In particular challenging the overwhelmingly negative narratives synonymous with menopause for decades.
My own research in Maynooth University, Ireland in 2020 revealed that the negative bias in the language associated with this transition contributes hugely to symptomology.
The “accepted” disempowering narrative or story has done nothing to benefit women.
Its time it was challenged and changed.
