    HAVING worked in retail for 20 years, Donna O’Brien was a confident store manager – but she believes crippling brain fog brought on by the menopause led to her being sacked.

    WOMEN going through the menopause are being forced out of work by discrimination, MPs warn. Those affected are 43 per cent more likely to be out of a job by age 55 than those without symptoms, reports the Women and Equalities Committee. 1Women going through the menopause are being forced out of work by discrimination, MPs warn, pictured: Caroline NokesCredit: Getty But they should be protected under the Equality Act, making it illegal for bosses to treat them differently, it says. Symptoms can include insomnia, hot flushes, migraine, muscle and joint pain and depression. The report calls for more support at work, alongside mandatory training for GPs and cheaper prescriptions. Caroline Nokes, committee chair and menopause campaigner, said: “Stigma, shame and dismissive cultures can and must be dismantled.

    HALF of women who have been through the menopause initially kept it secret from their partner – with a fifth not confiding in anyone at all at first, according to research. The poll of 2,000 women found 43 per cent of those who’ve gone or are going through the menopause or pre-menopause felt ‘completely alone’ during it. 1Many women don't tell their partners when they go through menopauseCredit: Getty Nearly eight in 10 (79 per cent) didn’t discuss their condition with another female relative and 77 per cent didn’t even tell their mother. While 60 per cent didn’t open up to friends and 76 per cent didn’t consult a healthcare professional. For 25 per cent, the difficulty in opening-up is partly because they perceive - or fear others perceive - the subject to be taboo. While 10 per cent of the 1,378 females polled who have gone through the menopause admitted they didn’t want it to happen so simply ‘pretended’ it wasn’t.

    Got a minute? Watch transgender swimmer Lia Thomas winning the 500-yard women's freestyle at the NCAA Championships in Atlanta, in which she beat an Olympic silver medallist into third place. Watch the smooth, constant, steady speed of her stroke, compared to the frantic, flaying of those trying to keep up with her. See that? Roughly four to six years of male puberty, right there. Thomas did not perform as well after that. She finished fifth in the 200-yard freestyle, close to two seconds off her personal best. In the 100-yard event, her poorest distance, she came eighth, and was almost a second slower than in qualifying.

    MANY women of menopausal age are likely to have heard those three letters "HRT", but have no clue what it actually is and if its for them. The menopause can be a confusing time as it is, with symptoms generally starting from the mid-40s and lasting years on end. 1 Hormone Replacement Therapy can work to alleviate some of the painful symptoms of the menopauseCredit: Alamy The experience can range from person to person - while some lucky few will have no problems with the "transition", others will experience symptoms so debilitating that it changes their life. Those who are struggling may benefit from HRT (hormone replacement therapy), which is used to relieve the symptoms such as hot flushes, mood swings, vaginal dryness and night sweats. In fact, many women say that it changed their life. But, due to misinformation spanning decades, many women may fear using HRT, and doctors can be reluctant to prescribe it. It means millions could be missing out on HRT, regarded as the most effective way to medically treat menopause symptoms. The Sun's Fabulous Menopause...

    Carly Pearce opened up about balancing her personal struggles with her career success, her work ethic and advice she'd give to her younger self in a recent interview with Fox News. Pearce, who just released her latest album "29: Set In Stone" and single "Never Wanted To Be That Girl," was nominated for multiple 2021 CMA Awards including female vocalist of the year along with being invited to join the Grand Ole Opry throughout the past year. Meanwhile, the country music star was also dealing with personal loss. Pearce filed for divorce from her husband Michael Ray roughly eight months after the two tied the knot. Pearce doesn't look at her career success during a rough patch in her life as "coincidence" though. CARLY PEARCE REFLECTS ON MICHAEL RAY DIVORCE: ‘IT WAS SO EMBARRASSING’ "I think that those career highs are kind of what kept me going and kept me feeling like I could push through," Pearce said.

    President Joe Biden said the Taliban is “going through sort of an existential crisis” and credited the group for giving Americans “safe passage” to get out of Afghanistan, during an interview that aired Thursday. Biden sat down with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos in what marked his first time answering questions from the press since the Taliban overtook Afghanistan. Stephanopoulos asked the president whether he believes the Taliban has changed, prompting Biden to declare “no” before clarifying his answer. “Let me put it this way,” the president said. “I think they’re going through sort of an existential crisis about do they want to be recognized by the international community as being a legitimate government. I’m not sure they do.” (RELATED: ‘Where Would I Go?’: Afghanistan’s First Female Mayor Says She’s Waiting For Taliban To Come And Kill Her) Stephanopoulos interjected, openly wondering if the Taliban cares about “their beliefs more,” to which Biden agreed and went on to give them props for providing “safe passage for Americans to get out.” “But they also care about whether they have food to eat, whether...
    Wally Funk has spent her life among the clouds. She had her first flight lesson at age nine, became a licensed pilot at 17 and has logged more than 19,000 flying hours. But her lifelong dream of going to space eluded her until now. At the age of 82, Funk will be the oldest person to travel to space when she goes up on Blue Origin's New Shepard rocket on Tuesday.  Alongside her will be Jeff Bezos, Bezos' brother, Mark, and Oliver Daemon, an 18-year-old who will become the youngest person ever in space. Funk's pathway to the stars was not an easy one. In the 1960s, while America's first astronauts were going through NASA's rigorous training, Funk was part of the Mercury 13, a group of 13 women who went through the same uncompromising exams. "We had no idea what we were going through. We didn't know where it was taking us," Funk said.  She described to CBS News' Michelle Miller some of the painful and strenuous tests the group of women went through. "X-raying all over your...
    WOMEN are going through the menopause for years before receiving the help they need, a shocking survey has revealed. Symptoms of hot flushes, fatigue and depression can be managed. But many women are not getting access to drugs. 3The menopause can cause a range of symptoms that make life difficultCredit: Getty - Contributor Some women said they had visited their GP several times without any progress.  The menopause is when a woman stops having periods and is no longer able to get pregnant naturally due to depleting levels of oestrogen. But the hormone rollercoaster that comes with it leaves women with debilitating symptoms for up to several years. These can start years before periods stop, known as the perimenopause, meaning some women may not even realise it's due to the menopause. On top of this, campaigners say GPs are not trained sufficiently to spot the signs or treat women appropriately. What are the signs? Menopause is a natural part of ageing, which usually happens when a woman is between the age of 45 and 55. In the UK, the average...
    WAUKEGAN, Ill. (CBS) — Women have reportedly been told to remove their blouses while going through metal detectors at the Lake County Courthouse in Waukegan, in what has been called a breakdown in security screening protocol. As CBS 2’s Charlie De Mar reported, leaders with the Lake County Sheriff’s office called the allegations about what is happening at the checkpoints unacceptable, and are in the process of reviewing surveillance video to try and determine what happened.

    When President Biden and Vice President Harris were sworn into office, there was a grand celebration by pro-abortion groups. They see the Biden-Harris administration as their chance to dramatically expand access to abortion on demand. How? In multiple ways, not the least of which is through the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA). Recently, House Democrats pushed through a resolution to remove the deadline Congress gave states in 1972 to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment. Clearly, they didn’t care that it is the view of the Department of Justice that such action isn’t permissible and that a district court ruled earlier this month that the deadline has firmly expired. JASON CHAFFETZ: DEMOCRATS' CRISIS RELIEF A PRETEXT TO THROW TRILLIONS AT THIS 'DISASTER LIBERALISM' AGENDA They claim that they are trying to resurrect the ERA – even if their actions are unconstitutional – to promote women’s empowerment, to fight discrimination and to create greater protections for women against assault, harassment and gender-based violence. These are noble causes, but we don’t need the ERA to complete them. Women are protected from discrimination under the...

    (CNN)On a cold day in March 2019, I locked myself on the roof of my New York City apartment building with a bottle of wine and a pack of ancient cigarettes I hadn't smoked in years. I was determined to take what little pleasure could be gained by privately unraveling outside in very public air. In just one year, I had been pregnant three times, but I did not have a baby. It was something I could still barely register, no matter how many times I filled out the hospital intake forms. Three pregnancies, zero children — an error, a horror, a badly done sum. That night, I allowed myself to howl out great gulping sobs as Manhattan glowed, oblivious, uncaring. I looked at the sky, the street, the wine I hadn't drunk for months, the cigarettes I hadn't smoked for years, and I said to everyone and no one, "I give up." The first pregnancy had ended dramatically, gruesomely, on my bathroom floor. The second was lost in the scratchy black-and-white TV silence of the ultrasound room at my...

    ZOE Hardman is the sort of woman who fizzes with energy. She talks engagingly, looks healthy and her skin is glowing, thanks to a much-needed post-lockdown family holiday in the South of France. But just a few months ago, Zoe was trapped in a depression so severe that some days she could barely function. It caused her sex drive to slump, put the darkest of thoughts into her head and tested her marriage to the limit. 8Zoe reveals she was trapped in a depression so severe that some days she could barely functionCredit: Mark Hayman Things eventually came to a head one night at the end of January, when she found herself curled up on the bathroom floor, heaving with sobs before eventually sliding into bed next to her ex-rugby star husband Paul “Dozza” Doran-Jones, 35, who told her that she had to get help because he wasn’t sure how much more either of them could take. In that moment, Zoe was forced to confront what deep down she had known all along; she was going through the menopause...
