The Media Mogul Oprah Winfrey

Producer, Author, Philanthropist

Oprah Winfrey

What can’t Oprah do? Aside from being the world’s most influential media mogul (and hard-hitting interviewer extraordinaire!), philanthropist, actress, and best-selling author, Oprah Winfrey also uses her reach to make sure women know they’re not alone when it comes to menopause. Her magazine, O! the Oprah Magazine, publishes some of the most influential and powerful destigmatizing menopause content available to women.

She’s featured here because her quote was one of the founding inspirations for Elektra: “So many women I’ve talked to see menopause as an ending—a loss of youth, autonomy and vitality. But I’ve discovered that the approach of menopause is a knock at the door that can prompt you to finally create the life you’ve always wanted. This is your moment to reinvent yourself after years of focusing on the needs of everyone else. It’s your opportunity to get clear about what matters to you, and then to pursue that with all of your energy, time, and talent.” Thank you, Oprah, for lifting the veil on menopause, and encouraging women to gracefully take the plunge into their next stage of life.
