Menowar is normalizing menopause and empowering women to proactively manage the mental, physical, and emotional impacts of menopause and thrive in their second half of life.
Menowar provides informational events, free Menopause Cafes, coaching, and speaking engagements.
Allison Lewin is the founder of Menowar and a trained Menopause Champion, licensed with the Menopause Experts Group. She is also the San Francisco Bay Area representative for the global nonprofit, Menopause Cafe.
As women, starting in puberty, we are mindful of our fertility and the unbelievable ability to create life inside ourselves. A man has one major hormonal event in his lifetime. We women can have over 400 monthly events over our lifetime, and then an average of 7 years in the various stages of menopause.
Menowar wants to change the way society and women view menopause. We want all women to feel:
You can be in control of your destiny vs. having hormones control you!
The brand name “Menowar” was chosen because of the parallels between women during menopause and the beautiful and powerful characteristics of the Portuguese Man ‘O War marine animal.
