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?
