Despite being a natural part of ageing, the statistics around menopause, careers and support for women make for shocking reading.

Recent research from the Fawcett Society found that one in ten women who have worked during the menopause have left a job due to their symptoms. Eight out of ten women said their employer hasn’t shared information, trained staff or put in a menopause absence policy. Almost half of women haven’t approached their GPs about the menopause and three in ten of those who have experienced delays in diagnosis. 

More clearly needs to be done to raise awareness of menopause, to get people having meaningful conversations and share help and support when needed.

Here are WeAreTheCity, we want to offer our support to try and help you navigate through these new challenges. We’ve got a whole host of themed features, opinion pieces, resources, advice articles and much more.
