Why « Happy Half Hundred »?
Because the number of centenarians is growing rapidly, in France and around the world:
- 3,760 in 1990 in France, almost four times more in 2008, more than 26,000 projected for 2021 and more than 140,000 for 20501.
- 92,000 worldwide in 1990, 255,000 in 2008, 621,000 projected for 2021 and nearly 3.2 million for 20502.
Because women represent more than 70% of these centenarians projected in the world over 2021 (78%) and 2050 (74%)2.
Because 50 years old is the age around which women enter menopause.
With 50 potential years ahead, menopause is anything but a dead end.
This is a new step, an opening to a world rich in happy possibilities.
