Menopause

Around 1 in every 3 women has either experienced or is currently going through the menopause.

Although some women do not experience difficulties as a result of the menopause, around 8 in every 10 women will experience noticeable symptoms and of these 45 percent will find their symptoms hard to deal with. Many women report that workplace environments and practices can make symptoms worse.

The menopause has traditionally been seen as a private matter or ‘a women’s issue’ and is often not a topic which is discussed openly or which has been taken into account in the design of workplaces and working practices.
