A Sharing of Life Experiences for Women of Honor
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) April 6, 2009
Sheila L. Agnew, author of All About the Vets, "A Sharing of Life Experiences for Women of Honor" has written a unique, refreshing and empowering book about women embracing the aging experience and challenging the stereotyping that reaching forty, fifty, sixty and beyond is a dreaded journey.
Sheila says that women are "Mo Better" with age and have now more then any other time in history created a beautiful image of aging that has come to the attention of advertisers and marketing executives. Because our lifestyles and interests may differ from that of younger women, we want to identify with people, products and services that relate to self. Women like first lady, Michelle Obama, have received worldwide recognition for their ageless beauty and natural charm. Actress, Angela Bassett in her late forties is featured in glamorous advertisements for L'Oreal and Olay. Oprah Winfrey made turning fifty a grand celebration.
The book is inspired by the author's personal life experiences as a mentor to women and youth, along with those of other women who have met with success through challenge, change and adversity to reach their dreams and goals despite of age.
Some of the book's discussions include: moving from the wilderness to the promise, the do you resolution, flight time, building confidence, divine in my skin, changing that attitude, fashion, I am not my hair, health and fitness, menopause, perseverance, reinvention, dating and marrying younger men and move with the spirit. The overall objective is to guide mature women on a path of discovery and recovery by discussing issues significant to their experiences.
