Will Older Women One Day Rule the World?

In today’s youth-obsessed culture, it’s easy to forget that older women are one of the most powerful groups – economically, politically and socially. As the founder of Sixty and Me, I believe in our collective power. I know that we can and will continue to make the world a better place. So, with this in mind, I was happy to hear about a new book called “The Longevity Economy” by Joe Coughlin. In his book, Joe argues that women our age will one day rule the world! This is a fascinating topic for me and I’d love to hear what you think! Come join us for a cup of tea (or coffee) and a chat. And, if you enjoy the show, please tell one friend about us today.
