7 quotes about (stupid) Menopause by awesome women!

Kim Cattrall, actress

“I see menopause as the start of the next fabulous phase of life as a woman. Now is a time to “tune in” to our bodies and embrace this new chapter. If anything, I feel more myself and love my body more now, at 58 years old, than ever before.”

Julie Walters, actress

“If you deal with it in a healthy fashion then I think you come out the other side a better person. I’ve got so much more energy now than I ever had in my early 50s before the menopause.”

Oprah Winfrey, TV personality

“So many women I’ve talked to see menopause as an ending. But I’ve discovered this is your moment to reinvent yourself after years of focusing on the needs of everyone else. It’s your opportunity to get clear about what matters to you and then to pursue that with all of your energy, time and talent.”

Amanda Redman, actress

“How hideous for women of our mothers’ generation, because – while me and my girlfriends will talk about everything under the sun, including the menopause – it was something they didn’t discuss. They must have felt so lonely and embarrassed all the time. For me, it’s tailing off now. But I can still suddenly go that awful colour when I’m talking to somebody and sweat beads will break out on my upper lip. You’re acutely aware of it, even if they’re not. But the more open we are about it, the less of a taboo it will become.”


Karen Barber, former ice dancer and Dancing on Ice judge

“The annoying thing is that nobody talks about the menopause. Why is that? It happens to literally every woman in the world, and yet we’re all embarrassed about it.”

Florence King, author

“A woman must wait for her ovaries to die before she can get her rightful personality back. Post-menstrual is the same as pre-menstrual; I am once again what I was before the age of twelve: a female human being who knows that a month has thirty day, not twenty-five, and who can spend every one of them free of the shackles of that defect of body and mind known as femininity.”

  1. Oprah Winfrey is my favourite quote here. Mine would be “even in the desert without a trail you find your way home” every women’s experience is going to be different. Some of us will feel lost. I know I did for a little while. We have the answers inside of us, when we listen to our bodies and respond with love & self-care things begin to quickly change for the better.

  2. WOW! That is so true… Yesterday I wrote a letter to my kids and one of the lines in it was “I feel lost…” But I know I will find the path I am meant to take. I always have, sometimes it’s right there in front of me and other times I’ve had to search a little harder for it. I think this may be one of those times. lol But I’ll find it!

  3. Yes you will without a doubt find a way. Every journey has temporary roadblocks and dead ends but we will still continue to our desired destination. For me I might know the route but I know where I want to be. Thank you for helping me to think about this more deeply


  4. Your welcome and Thank you for your encouraging words!
    Even though we are all on our own journeys and seaking our own paths, I like to think that we, as sisters and pilgrims through this tangled mess we call menopause, are all holding hands and encouraging one another along the way!
