Older and Wider

Older and Wider

by Jenny Eclair


For something that every cisgender woman in the world experiences, menopause is rarely discussed in public. As a result, many women are at a loss for how to deal with the common issues and discomforts of this stage in their lives. But one woman is on a mission to change that.

Jenny Eclair is a comedian, writer, and actor who's proud to have reached menopause – proud enough to be the advertising face of Vagisan, a cream used to treat vaginal dryness. In this book, Eclair helps us understand the changes women go through when they hit menopause and how to deal with them practically. With both humor and actionable advice, Older and Wilder tackles both the annoyances and silver linings that come with a woman's golden years.

Favorite quote

One of the simple facts of life is that more or less half the world's population will go through the menopause and yet, apparently, in some circles the subject is still considered taboo.
