Description

Jen Gunter is the internationally renowned, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of The Vagina Bible, and has been called “the world’s most famous–and outspoken–gynecologist” (The Guardian), the internet’s OB/GYN, and one of the fiercest advocates for women’s health. 

Jen’s last event at Kingston WritersFest sold out in a (hot) flash. Now, we are delighted to welcome her back with The Menopause ManifestoOwn Your Health with Facts and Feminisman empowering treatise that counters stubborn myths and misunderstandings about menopause with hard facts, real science, fascinating historical perspective, and expert advice. 

Knowing what is happening to your body and that there are options is itself powerful medicine” says Jen, “menopause has only been about frailty and weakness because that was the messaging from a patriarchal society. The story I want people to know is about value, agency and voice, and the knowledge to keep yourself in the best of health while demanding an equal seat at the table. That is my manifesto. 

“Whether she is debunking the damage done by Freud or providing the low down on the science of sex, Dr. Gunter provides a frank, funny and thoroughly science-informed perspective. This is the exact kind of book the world needs right now.” —Timothy Caulfield, author of Relax, Dammit! 

Books will be available for sale via Novel Idea books online here or by phoneincluding a limited number of signed copies.  The event will be followed by a virtual audience Q&A.
