Menopause is one of the last taboos – and MPowered Women is putting an end to that.
MPowered Women is a community hub of expert information, support and inspiration, giving women the resources and knowledge they need to power through the menopause. It’s a place where women come together to talk frankly and share experiences, because when women unite to help and inform each other, magic happens.
Menopause is a health issue that will affect half of the population, yet many GPs simply don’t know the facts, leaving women vulnerable, unsupported and, in many cases, £100s out of pocket to a private clinic. This has to change.
MPowered ensures that no woman has to struggle to be informed about what the hell is going on with her physical and mental health, and what she can do about it. With no subject off limits, MPowered has her back.
Saska Graville is 53 and happily on HRT. Being clueless about her own perimenopause symptoms when they hit at 49, made her determined to do something about how unprepared most women are for this period of their lives. MPowered Women was born.
Despite a career in women’s magazines, including being the deputy editor of Red, Saska had no idea that anxiety and loss of confidence were classic perimenopause symptoms. With MPowered Women, she hopes that other women will be informed and inspired to enjoy their menopause years. And yes, she’s staying on HRT forever.
Juliet Warkentin is 59 and (finally) moving through the last phase of menopause. She wished she had had a resource like MPowered Women when she was dealing with her first hot flushes.
A communications strategist, creative leader and marketer, she has worked with global and local brands from Marie Claire and WGSN, to Amazon and Trouva. She believes that there is more to midlife than meets the eye, and wants to reframe the way we think about it.
