Penelope Cruz is reportedly “really angry” about the “taboo” surrounding menopause. The 45 year-old actress thinks people get too “nervous” when discussing the things that women live with such as periods, post-partum depression and menopause when ladies lose their fertility and it’s time for both men and women to accept the reality that women will always be affected by their hormones. For this reason, female-led online platforms are emerging to kick off a dialogue around menopause. UK-based MegsMenopause.com is an open resource for many women navigating this change and have held conferences with brands and guest speakers to eliminate the taboo and empower women.
Like Penelope Cruz says “Of course it feels like there’s been some improvement. But it’s only the beginning ”.
