Women over the age of 40 are by far the biggest and the most active demographic in the Church of England. A huge proportion of any given congregation will likely have experienced menopause and yet it is almost entirely taboo as a topic of conversation in churches.

Writing with refreshing frankness, Jayne Manfredi uses biblical reflection, prophetic storytelling and prayer to journey with those experiencing “the dreaded m word”. Facing the taboo head-on and by turns hilarious and moving, Waking the Women offers a challenge to destigmatize women’s experiences by opening up the conversation around midlife and ageing in churches and other faith spaces.
