Women's Bodies, Women's Dreams: Menopause
Patricia Garfield Women's Bodies, Women's Dreams provides her own menopausal dream from her dream diary;
"I am startled to see that there are several sinks filled with dirty water. They need to be drained."
For Garfield menopause "is a critical turning point in a woman's life cycle, equal in significance to the menarche, the first intercourse and the birthing of a child". Garfield provides a whole chapter on menopausal dreams that mirror the physical and psychological changes experienced by women.
