Women and Aging by Ellen Cole

Book Description

In our youth-oriented, patriarchal society, aging and older women often find themselves either ignored, pitied, or feared. Women and Aging is a valuable guide to help women break through the negative stereotypes of old age and find personal fulfillment through the stages of maturity. Full of warmth and support, Women and Aging strongly enables women to take and remain in control of their lives instead of passively letting others make life-changing--and possibly harmful--decisions for them. This essential guide for aging will help women increase the vitality of their old age, as it urges them to continue to plan for the future, keep and develop strong relationships, increase their overall wellness, and not be afraid to take risks. Truly a celebration of aging, the author's illuminating descriptions of her own aging and how she has overcome society's restrictions are sure to be a source of inspiration for all women--no matter what their ages. Women and Aging begins by addressing cultural attitudes toward women, including appearance, language, behavior, and "women's work." The middle section encourages women to face their fears and limitations and express their emotions, while the concluding chapters are a virtual "guide to life," showing how to live life to the fullest and find inner fulfillment while aging. Along with her own continuing narrative, the author includes a multitude of personal glimpses into the aging processes of other women. This uplifting, helpful book will be of great value not only for aging women, but for women of all ages who are interested in taking active control of their own lives.
