TMM PODCAST EPISODE 051: Talking About Race. Black Lives Matter

George Floyd's tragic death while in police custody has sparked outrage all over the country. Incidents like this shows the ongoing problem with racism and how it wreaks havoc in our lives especially in the black community. There is a need to speak up and to have conversations regarding racism and to start asking ourselves 'What can I do to see change?'.

This podcast episode is from one of my Facebook live sessions where I talk with women in The Menopause Movement community about racism and it's a really difficult conversation to have. Maybe some will ask, what does this problem have to do with menopausal women? Well, I'd say, a lot. I believe that we, menopausal women, have influence, we have a voice that we can use to educate and draw healthy conversations about this issue especially with the people that surround us like our children and grandchildren, co-workers, friends, etc.

Our silence doesn't help at all. Tune in to this episode.
