Ep. 1229 Gen X Women (Encore)
Turns out - Generation X women are miserable and can't sleep! Squeezed between the Boomers and the Millennials, Gen X women face new challenges as they enter middle age - unique problems that are being dismissed, minimized or overlooked - and therefore, unaddressed by the culture at large. Ada Calhoun sheds light on the distinct cultural and political challenges facing Gen X women and offers solutions for how to re-emerge from the abyss. She surmises that Gen X women should reframe the story of their lives and mistakes and learn to see themselves as “heroines worth rooting for.” Calhoun has collaborated on several NY Times best-sellers and written for the NY Times, The Oprah Magazine, New York and The New Republic.
