You know that Menopause has gone mainstream when celebrities are talking about it and they are. From Oprah to Doctor Oz to Jane Fonda to Meg Matthews and Mariella Frostrup, to Gwyneth Paltrow it seems that a subject that was once taboo for the media is now being broached with increasing superstar power.
Every star mentioned above has addressed a variety of concerns and issues that arise during menopause and perimenopause. It is a wonderful starting point and hopefully more women will bring more media attention to the many topics that need to be discussed more openly.
We need to have more mainstream conversations like menopause weekly columns in the media to allow the many topics associated with these years to be commonplace and available on a daily basis.
