Sex, Age, & Menopause
Reviewed By: Melinda Cianos
Ruby believes that unless we make a concentrated effort to change damaging views and expectations, we will continue to chase youth for fear of being put-out-to- pasture. Society works to fuel this fire. In Eastern cultures, this is not so: there is a harmonious blending of mind, body and soul that allows women the freedom to “be” as they mature.
This book is not for those who may be offended by direct language or slang used in reference to the female anatomy. Ruby uses the terms to stress her point about the way we address our bodies, but it may not for everyone. Ruby is a postmenopausal woman who grew up and lives in Africa, however, I was unable to glean any other credentials. Sex, Age and Menopause is an interesting read. I appreciated her comparison of women viewed by different cultures.
