Women Over Fifty—Claim Your Pride
When was the last time you were proud of your age? If you’re thinking decades ago, I might suggest you make a slight shift in attitude. As baby boomer women, we are making fifty and better THE age to be!
There are lots of reasons for this. For starters, we represent the first generation whose female population can expect to live at least another thirty years, hopefully productive, after the age of fifty. Secondly, we are the only age group whose numbers are far greater than previous as well as subsequent generations. We do represent a critical mass and, yes, we’ve probably added a couple of pounds over the years so that mass just continues to grow. But, better yet, we remain as gloriously outspoken and willful as we were in our youth. So, no shrinking violets here: we ladies just won’t tolerate being shunted to the margins of society, all too often the matronly destiny of our foremothers.
If there ever was a generation of women over fifty who REFUSE to become invisible it is us! After all, by virtue of our numbers alone, acknowledgement, visibility, and communal clout are a boomer’s birthright.
So, forget fifty being the new thirty. Fifty is the totally new and revolutionary, sexy and saucy, white-hot and smokin’ FIFTY! We lucky ladies can be proud to claim this age as our own—in fact, let’s flaunt it by being the most bodacious, out there, and rockin’ set of grannies the planet has ever known!
