GLORIA STEINEM & GAYLE KING

The inaugural Couch Conversation took place on one of the most legendary couches of all–in the home of icon, activist, and all-around powerhouse Gloria Steinem. Gloria was joined by award-winning journalist Gayle King, Catherine Balsam-Schwaber and 10 inspiring women ready to ignite change, start the conversation, and ultimately pass the mic over to you.

Since 1966, Gloria Steinem's home has served as a haven and birthplace of arguably the most notable, groundbreaking movements in the fight for women’s rights—a place where the power of conversation leads to revolution. As a brand we are committed to a brazen act of redefining how we support women's health and the menopausal journey—the new conversation about menopause starts now.

KINDRA WELCOMES

From now on, a hot flash is

NO LONGER A HOT FLASH, IT’S A POWER SURGE.

We have to change the way that we think about menopause and the way that we talk about it, so that we can carry it forward and say

THIS IS NOT SOMETHING TO BE EMBARRASSED ABOUT.”

Catherine Balsam-Schwaber

“EVERY SOCIAL JUSTICE MOVEMENT IN THE WORLD STARTED WITH A CONVERSATION.”

From the first sewing circle we have been gathering together for generations—to create, to commune and to challenge. While the outside world may not appreciate what’s happening in these sacred connections, inside a group of us are getting ready to take action.

Couch Conversations are just that—a space for us to listen to one another and talk passionately and personally about shared experiences we have historically been encouraged NOT to share. So many people on their menopause journey feel isolated. They feel they are going at it alone. They need a kind of support, knowledge, and encouragement that can only be found in our collective words.

We’re done keeping empowering conversations quiet. Welcome to Couch Conversation where with your help we will change the conversation around menopause.
