Women, Aging & Myths: 10 Steps to Loving Your Long Life

When you think of becoming an older women do your thoughts turn mostly positive or mostly negative? And why? For many they go negative—almost by default. If this is you or someone you know, you might be bound by cultural myths about women’s aging. We are aged not just by biology, but also by culture—especially women. Growing old alone, becoming invisible, dependent, sick, a bag lady, or just the fear of uncertainty, aren’t the inevitable outcomes of living a long life. At least they don’t have to be for you.

This book takes on ten such myths about women and aging, explores theories, shares stories, and tells the myth-busting lived experiences of 10 women defying them. You will come away inspired and looking forward to loving your long life.

Best Wishes, Patrick Roden PhD
