About this ebook

New York Times Bestseller * USA Today Bestseller* Los Angeles Times Bestseller * Publishers Weekly Bestseller

A guide to wisdom, authenticity, and bliss for women as they age by the author of Reviving Ophelia.


Women growing older contend with ageism, misogyny, and loss. Yet as Mary Pipher shows, most older women are deeply happy and filled with gratitude for the gifts of life. Their struggles help them grow into the authentic, empathetic, and wise people they have always wanted to be.

In Women Rowing North, Pipher offers a timely examination of the cultural and developmental issues women face as they age. Drawing on her own experience as daughter, sister, mother, grandmother, caregiver, clinical psychologist, and cultural anthropologist, she explores ways women can cultivate resilient responses to the challenges they face. “If we can keep our wits about us, think clearly, and manage our emotions skillfully,” Pipher writes, “we will experience a joyous time of our lives. If we have planned carefully and packed properly, if we have good maps and guides, the journey can be transcendent.”

Editor's Note

Mother's Day…

For all the empty nesters out there, whether your kid is all grown up or you’re a grandmother, societal expectations around older women tend to be particularly cruel. Psychologist Mary Pipher is here to help you navigate the rough patches of this river so that you continue to thrive now that your identity has shifted.
