Cracking Open the Conversation on Menopause

BY SHIRLEY WEIR
@ VOL 13 ON NOV 05, 2016

When Shirley Weir mentions the word “menopause" at a cocktail party, she often gets some peculiar reactions. People don’t like talking about it, and when they do, it is mostly in a negative context. Fact: women live beyond the retirement party of their ovaries. Yet, perimenopause and menopause continue to be misunderstood.

In Cracking Open the Conversation on Menopause, Shirley uses examples from her own personal journey, as well as from advertising, media and the internet, to help reframe menopause from something that is solely negative—into a conversation that women (and men!) embrace, look forward to and celebrate!
