You are here
Good afternoon! The AARP thought this would be the right time for you to meet someone who can give you a first-hand, personal account of what it's like to be a woman "of a certain age"...someone who is facing their older years, possibly alone, but with courage...someone who could be your mother or your sister or your best friend.
Well, here I am.
Honestly, I think I was more shocked than anyone when the AARP asked me to wrap up this portion of the conference. I suspect it's obvious - even to the most casual observer - that, as a spokesperson for the financial issues faced by mature women, I am demographically challenged in more ways than you can possibly imagine.
But I can speak to you with some authority about one particular woman - a woman who enormously influenced my attitudes on this subject - and who really helped shape who I am.
