Menopause is a taboo subject that is rarely discussed openly, making it difficult for women to talk about it. In the minds of many, the term “menopause” conjures up connotations of filth or shame rather than an inevitable part of the aging process for women. While it doesn’t happen to every woman at the same time, all women go through it at some point. Women who don’t want to discuss the issue in public choose to eliminate it from themselves.

As a result, a growing number of female celebrities are speaking out about their own personal experiences. Several celebrities, including Gwyneth Paltrow, Cynthia Nixon, and Oprah Winfrey, have inspired many women to follow their lead.

See which celebrities defied gender norms by being open and honest about the menopausal transition.

Post-menopause, says Naomi, can be a “liberating moment” for women who have gone through menopause.
