Why Acknowledge World Menopause Day?

World Menopause Day is an awareness day held every year on the 18th of October – held within World Menopause Month. The aim is to raise awareness of peri-menopause and menopause and support those suffering from physical and/or mental side effects.

Since its inception in 2009, World Menopause Day has covered many themes including cognition, mood, memory, bone health, fertility, hormones, sexual well-being, heart health, weight and medication.


  • There are roughly 4 million women in the UK workforce aged 45-55 – the prime age for menopause.
  • 50% of women had not taken on additional responsibilities at work due to the menopause
  • 1 in 4 women consider leaving their jobs because of the menopause
  • 10% of women actually leave their jobs because of the menopause
  • The average length of menopause from the initial symptom to the final stages is 4 years but can last for 10

Whilst it is spoken about more in mainstream media, peri-menopause and menopause are still seen as a sort of taboo subject, leading to thousands of women suffering in silence. At Great British Speakers, we have a wide range of female speakers, willing to share their stories and provide helpful ways that businesses can support their staff.
