Women, work and the menopause

According to this report, 78% of women aged between 45 and 54 participate in the Australian workforce, representing over a million women potentially experiencing menopause while at work.

Women, work and the menopause: releasing the potential of older, professional women is a report from the Australian Research Centre in Sex Health and Society at La Trobe University and authored by Gavin Jack and colleagues. It explores:

  • Older women's health and well-being
  • The relationship between menopause-related symptoms and work outcomes
  • Actual and desired levels of organisational support for women experiencing menopause
  • Work-related and organisational factors that exacerbate or ameliorate women's experiences of menopause in the workplace
  • Women's first-hand experiences, beliefs and attitudes towards menopause at work.
