The New York Times bestseller - a guide to wisdom, authenticity and bliss for women as they age.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.'

Notă biografică

Mary Pipher is a psychologist specializing in women, trauma, and the effects of our culture on mental health, which has earned her the title of "cultural therapist" for her generation. She is the author of several New York Times bestsellers, including Reviving Ophelia, The Shelter of Each Other, and Another Country. She lives in Lincoln, Nebraska.


An enlightening look at how women can age joyfully.
[Women Rowing North] aims to serve as a corrective, both practical and inspiring, adorned with Pipher's signature homespun maxims and a generous smattering of nature imagery.
[Pipher's] 'quest for joy and happiness' is sincere, as is her commitment to helping other women achieve theirs. Some readers will treasure the book. All readers will admire her unadorned but wise summation that answered prayers are 'a surcease of worry.'
A wisdom-filled guide . . . Pipher's mindful tips act as a map to joy and remind us that we can flourish through all of our years
This is bound to become the bible of baby boomer women.
Think of Women Rowing North as a GPS for navigating your later years. And while Pipher, 71, says she wrote it specifically for women crossing from middle age to old age, there is much in the book that is useful for any of us.
A work chock-full of wisdom and consoling messages . . . While a must-read for its target audience of women moving into old age, Pipher's engaging book is an ought-to-read for their daughters and sons as well, as it sets forth the universal message that 'happiness is a choice and a set of skills.'
Uplifting and calming . . . Pipher's skill of listening to clients and parsing meaning is evident in this volume filled with stories of women in the throes of change.
This positive, affirming book will inspire and guide women facing these challenges.
An encouraging, comforting and very welcome message about the strength and joy that can come with age.
Thoughtful, wise, and profoundly transformative, Women Rowing North tells the stories that make us feel accompanied and hopeful as well as providing models and muses for all the challenges and joys of this later stage of life. Pipher inspires us to take on this most important role, one that is most needed in these challenging times of division and rancor: that of wise elders joining together and welcoming all into the beloved community she has labored to create. This is truly a one-of-a-kind book, one that I've been waiting for.
In Women Rowing North Mary Pipher offers an illuminating, much-needed template for moving through advancing years with gratitude and grace--not through denial or rejection of what's broken and lost but by opening our hearts fully to everything our life delivers. This is a book to treasure, to keep by the bedside to remind us that, contrary to shopworn stereotypes, joy and wonder don't have a time-stamp.
If I needed one book to guide me through the perils to the delights of aging, it is Mary Pipher's Women Rowing North. It sets the direction, shows the dangers, and brings the reader safely through to joy. I feel gratitude, not only for life, but for this wonderful book.
Simultaneously honest and calming, Women Rowing North is like an extended therapy session for millions of women who are strong and resourceful, but need to be reminded of that. This book examines head-on the losses and crises we all fear, cohering into a profound and comforting guide to living deftly and deeply well into old age.
I love this book. Don't stop with a once-through reading. I myself keep it at hand to dip into for a quick shot of Mary Pipher's matter-of-fact wisdom, humor, and instinct for the essential. It never fails.
Eye-opening . . . heart-wrenching and uplifting.
An important book . . . Pipher shines high-beam headlights on the world of teenage girls.
A generous book conceived and executed by a compassionate . . . mind.
Serious and thoughtful material presented with the fluidity of good fiction.
A must-read for all of us who care about young women in our lives . . . Reviving Ophelia arms us with information we can use in helping our daughters grow to adulthood with their strength intact.
A canny mix of optimism and practicality.
An absorbing chronicle of discovery.
A field guide to old age, combining personal stories with social theory.
Pipher offers warm, empathetic guidelines for navigating aging and for recognizing its unexpected gifts.
