I am woman. Hear me ROAR! About mood swings, lack of libido, dry vaginas and finding your power because these things are real!
When it comes to talking about the tangible signs and symptoms of peri- and post-menopause there are women out there who raise the bar.
In fact, they ROAR.
Following is one of them.
(Please share the following with your girl gang.)
Katie Day: The Roar Of The Menopause
Katie Day is the founder of the global leading women’s professional development programme RDP International. In addition, she is one of the UK’s leading voices on menopause.
She wants us all to ROAR about it.
“Menopause is a rite of passage for every woman. Not every woman will experience pregnancy and childbirth but every woman – if she lives long enough – will experience menopause,” she says.
“Killer whales also go through menopause and when she becomes post-menopausal she’s deemed by the rest of the pod to be the natural leader. Isn’t that interesting? I’m wondering what the rest of the world could learn from killer whales.
The message I want to give you is to own your power. Own your pizzaz. And shine your light as bright as you possibly can, because the world needs the ROAR of the menopausal woman. It needs it now more than ever and it ignores our roar at its peril.”
Her rather extraordinary story is below.
