Authors: Kang, Natasha Tyng.

Issue Date: 2013
Abstract: This study seeks to fill the gaps in the current literature on postmenopausal women and their Sexual Attractiveness in Singapore. It explores the subjective experiences of Menopause, providing a feminist perspective in understanding the Menopause other than biomedical ones. The focus thus was on exploring these “ground-level” realities that reflect the salience of biomedical, socially constructed meanings embodied in Singaporean postmenopausal women. Drawing on in-depth interview data, I argue on the importance of exploring how these postmenopausal women understood their Menopause, and negotiate their sexual selves through oppression and resistance in Singapore society.
