Women over the age of 30 becoming invisible and being dismissed is routine in most places on the globe. We still have lots of life to live, though.
Watching YouTube videos encompassing advice for women divorcing at age 50 and older is vague at best, stupid at worst. Women in my particular demographic are supposed to “protect their finances” or “go back to work” and “think positively”.
Isn’t that generalized advice for everyone? Or are there actually 50 year old women out there, who are broke after their divorce, who don’t know that they need to generate some kind of income for themselves?
We give advice for younger women all of the time, we have done that very thing, on this blog. But this time, what guidance do you have for women over 40? Do you have specific advice for older women who are recently divorced? Or widowed? Share your knowledge.
All women are welcome to participate, you can be under 50, under 40, single, married, divorced, all women are welcome to tell us about it.
Tell us what you have learned from your lived experience, and from the women around you.
