How often do you see a gorgeous woman and think, ‘She must have been a beauty when she was younger?’
Or, ‘If she dyed her hair you’d never know how old she is.’
Baby boomer women get that all the time. They get knocked for over-doing, for under-doing, for chasing the calendar, and resetting the clock.
The older generation looks at them with pity, “Dear, when will you learn to accept your age and act accordingly.”
Younger generations say, “I won’t have to try that hard when I get old.”
Why do boomer women make an effort? Because they don’t want to grow invisible.
They remember who the hot young thing was, who the IT girl was. They haven’t forgotten the heads they’ve turned.
After decades of carrying the weight for all women, they still aren’t willing to put that burden down. They won’t step aside, and that bothers some people.
Boomer women grew up opening their own doors, burning bras, and hitting the glass ceiling harder than anyone else.
Why won’t they make way for the next in line to push the envelope? Because they don’t quit and they’re not done.
