Join Lambeth Library readers, menopause researcher Hilary Baxter and special guests to discuss Allison Pearson’s How Hard Can It Be?
In Pearson’s book, the leading character Kate Reddy tackles the problems of combining a busy ‘doing it all’ life in a sexist working environment, with the emotional load of ageing parents, raising teenagers and becoming increasing frustrated as she also deals with her own menopause. This experience resonates with many mid-life women struggling with their own well-being on top of complex work/life commitments.
The menopause is a mid-life experience for all women yet currently there is no collective preparation, no agreed list of symptoms, few remedies, no public discussion and a lack of visible role models. We will start the change (!) by discussing this breakthrough humorous novel and its wider impact. Pick up your copy of the book at West Norwood Library and join us.
