Women Confronting Retirement: A Nontraditional Guide
(Rutgers University Press, 2003; 368 pp.)
As women of the baby boom generation grow older, the need for a new conversation about aging and retirement is vital. In Women Confronting Retirement, editors Nan Bauer-Maglin and Alice Radosh showcase the voices of 38 women from a wide range of professions, ages, and life situations as they confront the need to redefine who they are when they leave the workplace. The contributors urge women to find new self-images, to balance meaningful work and creative play, and to reform public policies that support enhanced opportunities for retirement. Nan Bauer-Maglin is academic director of the CUNY Baccalaureate Program at The Graduate Center; Alice Radosh, now retired, has taught psychology at Brooklyn College and directed the NYC Mayor's Office of Adolescent Pregnancy and Parenting Services.
