I bet that’s not a question most people ask themselves frequently. We are used to sweep that kind of topics under the rug. However, this is only a disservice to the entire community of musicians, including those that undergo menopause and those who don’t. For that reason, I wrote an article with all about it for the Musicians’ Union.
Recently my Guest Blog ‘The Journey Of A Menopausal Musician’ for the Musicians Union caught the attention of Jemma Tanswell, the Director of Reform Radio Station in Manchester. Jemma invited me to be a Guest on their Round Table discussion for International Women’s Day via Zoom.
I have deliberately delayed writing this post because I needed time to reflect on my position on this. It’s Painful. Black Lives Matter, so where do I stand?
Towards the end of December, the Musicians Union shared my article on menopausal musicians on their Twitter account. I am glad they keep the articles rotating to ensure more people who might benefit from them can read them.
