Change: Women, Ageing and the Menopause

By Germaine Greer


“The purpose of this book is to demonstrate that women are at least as interesting as men, and that ageing women are at least as interesting as younger women. The climacteric and women’s experiences during it and their strategies for managing it all fascinate me. It is not a stage to hasten through, let alone obscure or deny. On these years depends the rest of your life, a life which may be as long as the life you have already lived.”

In this compulsively readable, fascinating account of menopause, renowned feminist and author Germaine Greer gives us so much more than the medical facts. She has gone back into history, read textbooks, explored novels and poems, and has written a wholly extraordinary account of women and their changes in life.
