Overview

Boomer women are about to pass yet another milestone — RETIREMENT! The first wave of women to enter the workforce in significant numbers benefited from the feminist revolution and fought for a place in the world of work. Now these women are leading the rush for the exits. As they near retirement age, they're wondering what was gained, what was lost, and what comes next. They're stepping out into trackless territory. This is not the end of a productive life. It can be an exciting gateway into a future that is challenging and rewarding, always provided that we plan for it. Written by two successful professional women, a lawyer and a psychologist, the book explores the practical, personal and psychological issues surrounding retirement. With clear-eyed vigor and enthusiasm they look at what retirement will mean for women, and offer concrete strategies for gaining control of the retirement process.
