Who has inspired you on your midlife journey?

Article by Ceri Wheeldon

As we celebrate International Women’s Day, I would love to know which women have inspired you  after turning 50. We can take inspiration from so many different people at different stages of our lives- family members, friends, teachers, women in history, women over 50 in the media.

But who has inspired you in this second half of your life?

And who have you inspired in return?

The way we shape our own lives today can have a tremendous impact on how younger women live their lives tomorrow. We are a generation of boomer women who have spearheaded tremendous change in terms of gender equality, having careers, independence and choices and opportunities not even considered by most of our mothers and grandmothers. Now, we have the opportunity to redefine how ageing is perceived for a generation of women living healthier and longer lives than those before us. Changes we make today will help define how others live tomorrow.

So who has inspired you on your midlife journey, and who will you inspire?

    Many women in the media have inspired me but I’m most inspired by several close family friends who are in their 90s and are still regularly out and about wearing their fashionable clothes and tastefully applied make up. If I could do that in my 90s I’ll be proud of myself.

    My great grandmother was born in Essex, learning to sew but not to read. She married a widowed priest with 5 children, had 4 more – and then he died. The church did not look after her, so she took them all to a garret in East London, sewed dress shirts for wealthy men, and paid for all the children to go to school – and learn to read. Three generations later – and my cousins and I all went to university.
