This Episode: The Menopause Revolution – with Lesley Salem

Lesley Salem is founder of Over The Bloody Moon, podcast hostess of “The Change Makers” and hostess of OTBM Masterclasses and Meet Ups, so an encyclopedia when it comes to menopause.

Lesley joins Lucinda to talk about how the menopause affects the workplace, and how the perception of such an important event in our lives has changed across the generations.

Key Takeaways

  • Menopause has always been treated as a taboo subject, and hardly talked about. However, it needs to be brought out into the open as it has a great effect on the workplace as we know it.
  • The Men-O-Vest has been designed to reproduce the same hot flush feelings of menopause so that more empathy can be created around a subject that many men find difficult to understand.
  • The construct in which women operate in many organisations is still very patriarchal. This opens a much wider question about the emergence of feminine leadership power.
