The Secret Weapon in the Fight This Time

Soon after all hope was lost on election night, my only thought was, We’ve lost everything we fought for! My daughter, who is 30, called a few hours later to see how I was doing, and I had no consolation to offer her. But when I realized that her concern was for more than her distraught mother, I knew what to say. “Now, it’s up to you.”

I understood that in this crisis, my generation would have to put our trust in the generations coming along behind us. It’s not just my daughter’s generation that will be doing the heavy lifting in this fight: We’ve got a secret weapon.

Celebrating You Gotta Have Girlfriends With My Post-Fifty Posse!

My Post-Fifty Posse

We are five former Ms. magazine colleagues who have been having dinner together once a month for over 20 years. We like to try new places, which is a good thing, since I am not sure we would be welcome back to a restaurant after a visit. We generally sit there for three or four hours, order an assortment of appetizers, laugh uproariously — and pay with five credit cards!

Each brings her own kind of support, encouragement, empathy and humor to the table. We tease each other about the very traits we cherish. There is the Do-Gooder; the Fierce One; the Peacemaker; the Pragmatic Midwesterner and me (“the Terminally Modest One,” according to the Fierce One, whom I consulted). Collectively we are more than the sum of our parts.

7 Reasons I Would Never Want To Be Young Again

I spent last evening at dinner with my “post-50 posse” (that’s what I call that special group of special friends in my eBook You Gotta Have Girlfriends). We have been meeting once a month since 1989, and over the years we have come to count on each other more and more, until, like almost all the women I interviewed about their friendships, “I couldn’t have gotten through it without them” — “it” being any of the challenges, delights and disappointments of navigating a new stage of life.

The best thing is that we are all at the height of our power, and we feel that …

When the living is easy and the rules are lax


1. Don’t even dream of “acting your age.” Now is the time for taking salsa dancing – secretly if you must. Or getting up an hour earlier – it’s light then – and writing down your most unformed thoughts. Take risks. Make a fool of yourself.
2. Make one tiny change in your routine, because even the smallest alteration shakes up the whole day – in a good way.
3. Clean house – not the cupboard kind. But get …

We are launching a new feature – Stories from the Frontlines of Second Adulthood. The stories are from FIFTY IS THE NEW FIFTY and my other books, women I have met through lectures, interviews, friends, and now through this website.
Throughout our lives, we have taken on so many roles. So many imposed expectations. So many responsibilities we weren’t sure we could – or wanted to – handle. So many doubts about performance. Now the scripted lines are giving way to the …
