The latest special-interest category requiring workplace seminars: Menopause

But not all special needs are equal. Nor are all women. Some suffer from more menopause symptoms than others. Some, yours truly included, hardly notice changes sufficient to warrant much attention. Most women of my generation, I’d wager, wouldn’t have considered mentioning any related grievance lest they/we be viewed as whiny babies who couldn’t compete with men on a level playing field. Upon hearing about this latest movement, a friend clucked her tongue and said, “Oh for God’s sake, I worked up until the minute I gave birth.” (I, on the other hand, had to spend the last three months of pregnancy confined to bed. So . . . everyone’s different.)
