Just like what Samantha Jones said in Sex and the City 2, “I need to speak to an ambassador, or an embassy, or someone in menopause?” People find it difficult to talk about their menopause journey, unless it is with somebody who has experienced it as well. Society has taught us that menopause as a conversational topic is awkward, when really, it is just the way of life.
vive encourages raw, unfiltered conversations among menopausal individuals or even for those who are just curious to learn. All are welcome. At vive, we aim to exchange menopause wisdom and knowledge, while being as open as possible in a safe, shame-free community.
vive, which means “long live”, celebrates the wisdom and life experiences people gain during their peri-/menopause journey. The longevity peach motif seen throughout the visuals is derived from the Chinese culture, also symbolizing long life. Menopause can be tough, but then it is magnificent - a milestone.
