January 2010 Good Housekeeping selection. The road to greener living is paved with sustainably sourced flagstones and earnest intentions. Make this the year you follow through on at least some of your resolve (and stay budget-aware) with Ms Harris’s guilt-free and eminently do-able guidance to makedoing and mending, green laundering and the sound looking after of your home. This nicely packaged little book gets to the heart of the matter – whether it be enticing you to dabble a tad in some home-grown veg and herbs or explaining how to be planet-aware as you party – with unadulterated encouragement.
The menopause has for so long been one of the many taboos surrounding the female body - something we simply don't talk about. Yet, it is transformational for each and every woman who goes through it, marking a fundamental change in their lives. For some it comes with many challenges, for others it heralds a shift in the way they see themselves and the way in which they wish to be seen. For many, it marks a midway point on their journey. Globally, there are diverse perceptions of a woman's midlife - from the stereotyped sweaty, hot-flush-beleaguered female to the liberated cougar; the infertile 'crone' to the wise woman - but the reality of the experience is rarely shared, leading to uncertainty, confusion and sometimes even shame. The women in this book change that - a diverse range of original voices discuss the menopause's influence on their bodies, their relationships, their lives at work and at home, and their place in the world. They openly talk about their symptoms and experiences, surgical approaches and science, sex and gender, motherhood and daughterhood, grief and loss, creativity and awakenings, prejudice and position, culture and context, and what it means to be 'a woman'. They shape a new courageous conversation about how we can and should view the menopause and a woman's midlife.
