Description:

Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Women Confronting Retirement showcases the voices of thirty-eight women from a wide range of professions, ages, and life situations as they confront the need to redefine who they are when they leave the workplace. The women of the Baby Boom generation were the first to enter the professional world in large numbers, and the first such generational cohort to encounter the challenges of retirement. The contributors urge women to reach for different approaches to this major stage of life, to find new self-images, to balance meaningful work and creative play, and to reform public policies to support enhanced opportunities for retirement. The stories in this book compellingly chronicle the fears and hopes of women who have only begun to think about retirement, those who are in the process of retiring, some who have been retired for several years, and a few who have decided that retirement is not for them. Unlike traditional "how-to" books, Women Confronting Retirement makes clear that there are no right or wrong answers to the many questions this uncharted stage of life poses for women of the Baby Boom generation and those who follow. These women help us explore the next steps with the same courage they brought to every aspect of their lives before reaching retirement age. Bookseller Inventory #

Synopsis: Women Confronting Retirement showcases the voices of thirty-eight women from a wide range of professions, ages, and life situations as they confront the need to redefine who they are when they leave the workplace behind them. The women of the Baby Boom generation were the first to enter the professional world in large numbers, and the first to encounter the hazards of retirement. The contributors urge us to reach for new approaches to this major stage of life, to find new self-images, to balance meaningful work and creative play, and to work for the new public policies that support enhanced opportunities for retirement. Many of these women were involved in the key activist movements of the sixties and seventies, and their work often has been an extension of their social commitment. Defining themselves through their careers, they have challenged traditional models at every stage of their lives and are now being challenged by their own negative stereotypes about retirement. The stories in this book compellingly chronicle the fears and hopes of women who have only begun to think about retirement, those who are in the process of retiring, some who have been retired for many years, and a few who have decided that retirement is not for them. They address issues such as identity, aging, creativity, family, and community. Unlike traditional "how-to" books, Women Confronting Retirement makes clear how individual the choices are, how there are no right and wrong answers to the many questions this uncharted stage of life poses for women of the Baby Boom generation, and those who follow. These women help us to explore the next steps with the same courage and questioning attitudes that they have brought to every aspect of their lives before they reached retirement age. - Retiring into Intensity, Experiencing "Deep Play" - Rethinking Ambition: Women on the Edge of Retiring - Circling the Wagons: A Guide to Lesbian Retirement - Clearing a Path: A Journal from the Year before Retirement - Time to Look Back: My Family and the Movement - A Mennonite Retirement: From Work Projects to Play Projects - Doc Finds Happiness in Arts Community - Does an Activist Ever Retire? - Discovering What Matters: A Focus Group on Retirement - Retirement without Regrets - Carpe Diem/Follow Your Passion - Social Insecurity: A Cautionary Tale - Retirement: From Rags to Rags - Never Retire
