Menopause: A Midlife Passage

Menopause: A Midlife Passage (Hardback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


"Menopause has become a hot (with or without the flashes) topic in America. That's because a critical mass of us have reached it and are educated, aggressive, and confident enough to want to know what's happening to us, and then to talk about it...Smart, useful, funny, "Menopause: A Midlife Passage" is a fine addition to the discussion, a healthy companion for this all-important life passage." - Susan Stamberg, Special Correspondent, National Public Radio. Most women anticipate menopause with fear and dread. Yet few know or understand 'the change'. It is that ignorance and lack of information that "Menopause: A Midlife Passage" attempts to redress. This transitional phase presents a woman with numerous choices and opportunities for the future.

The contributors to "Menopause" reflect and offer differing perspectives on menopause and the position of women in midlife: social scientists discuss cultural and personal perspectives; health care specialists explain and discuss the physiology of menopause, the medicalization of a natural process, and disagreements regarding hormone replacement therapy; a visual artist interprets women's experience of menopause; a screenwriter and film critic discusses filmic representations of midlife women; social analysts and theorists examine moral and policy questions raised by menopause. This volume provides women with a female-defined perspective on menopause and the passage to new physical, social, and cultural development.
