One of the many women who impressed me at the Women At Woodstock 2017 Writers Retreat was Ann Stoney. Not only is she a beautiful writer, she gets herself out there.

I just heard from Sandra Butler of the 70 Candles group (women aged 70 and over) about her new book, co-authored with Nan Gefen: It Never Ends: Mothering Middle-Aged Women.

Roommates4Boomers, the roommate-matching service for women over 50, announced a month of FREE service throughout the 2017 winter holidays. People who live alone feel loneliest during holiday season.

According to a nationwide survey*, women age 50 and older fear becoming a burden to their families more so than men; 66% of women versus 50% of men are nagged by this thought. More than 75% worry that they won’t have money for what care they may eventually need. Yet more than 60% of women haven’t[…]

I just discovered this website for over-50 women and men, published by Beth Portolese.
