Synopsis:

At 30 ...

Former vice-presidential candidate Geraldine Ferraro was a stay-at-home mother. Founder and CEO of Oxygen Media Geraldine Laybourne was working at a public interest think tank for teachers. Political strategist Mary Matalin was a first-year law student-- and about to drop out. And months prior to her thirtieth birthday, financial strategist and best-selling author Suze Orman was working as a waitress, making $400 a month.

Decades later, these Boomer women and many others have reached the pinnacles of their professions. So why do Gen-X/Y women feel such pressure to have the perfect career, body, husband, and kids by the time they are at or around 30? Why has 30 become such a make-or-break moment?

As the generation that came of age after the most visible glass ceilings had been broken, Gen-X/Y women were raised to believe in futures without limitations. Yet, as journalists Lia Macko and Kerry Rubin reveal in their fascinating investigation, many women have distorted the well-intentioned empowerment messages of their youth and are quietly blaming themselves when they fail to overcome the very real obstacles that still exist in our society. Though many Gen-X/Y women are hitting the same roadblocks at the same time, instead of questioning what's wrong with the system-- as Boomer women did in their twenties-- they're questioning their own "choices."

Searching for solutions, Macko and Rubin have enlisted the aid of the New Girls' Club, a group of successful, satisfied women who've lived through their own crossroads moments, earned their battle scars, and now share their stories and strategies. While today's young women may indeed be a generation in the middle of a Midlife Crisis at 30, they now have a dream team of mentors to help guide them through it.

From the Back Cover:

Is 30 the new 50?

In Midlife Crisis at 30, journalists Lia Macko and Kerry Rubin uncover a growing phenomenon in our culture: A substantial number of the 58 million young women of Generation X/Y experience intense work/life conflicts very early in their careers, often before children or marriage are even part of the equation.

Drawing on the latest research, census data, and conversations with more than a hundred college-educated 25- to 37-year-old women, Macko and Rubin investigate the changing social, economic, and political factors that are leading scores of young women to ask themselves, Why is my life so out of sync with my expectations? Is the path I've chosen leading me in the wrong direction?

As part of their investigation for answers to these questions, Macko and Rubin assembled the New Girls' Club, a dream team of mentors. Former vice-presidential candidate Geraldine Ferraro; Academy Award-winning actress Susan Sarandon; financial strategist and best-selling author Suze Orman; Oxygen Media founder and CEO Geraldine Laybourne; political strategist Mary Matalin; CNN's Paula Zahn; best-selling authors Judy Blume, Dr. Susan Love, and Gail Evans; and many others, share their crossroads moments and strategies for moving forward with this next generation of great women poised to take their professional and personal lives to unprecedented heights.

"As I read Midlife at 30, I felt a wave of relief: I'm not the only one in a panic at the doorstep of my 30th birthday! It's about time someone exposed the underside of 'having it all' and the pressure to follow in our supermoms' steps."
--Rachel Simmons, author of Odd Girl Out: The Hidden Culture of Aggression in Girls
