Still Hot! cuts through the embarrassment, myths and silence that have surrounded women’s understanding of their own changing bodies for so long. Featuring contributions from Lorraine Kelly, Val McDermid, Baroness Sayeeda Warsi, Denise Welch, Trinny Woodall and Angie Greaves among many others.
Also available from all good bookshops!
The menopause – what even is it? One big theme unites Still Hot!’s 42 stories – that, somehow, the world doesn’t ready us for this. The menopause – let alone the perimenopause – simply isn’t talked about; instead it’s reduced to a comic hot flush. More and more of us are proudly stepping free of the menopausal closet, but the Big M is still a conversation whispered below the radar. No one tells you it will be like this. No one prepares you for it.
That silence is lifting, slowly. So let’s be bold, let’s overshare. Let’s find solidarity among Still Hot!’s myriad voices – measured, fierce, wise, rebellious, upfront – telling how the menopause is not just one story, but many. Telling, in fact, that this is not the menopause, it is YOUR menopause.
