i would like to start a thread highlighting the accomplishments of successful middle-aged women and their transformative impact on our society. in the very recent past, our youth-obsessed culture was not very gracious to older women. with the aging of the boomer generation, this harsh attitude towards older women is softening bit by bit. in fact, smart, savvy middle-aged women are becoming increasingly in vogue.

Oprah is an American phenomenon. Her influence is pervasive. In fact, Time Magazine named her as one of the 100 most influential persons of the 20th century.

Joyce Meyer, age 65, is an energetic leader in the Christian church. She has broken many barriers as a woman minister of the Gospel, and also as an older woman. She is a world-renown Bible teacher, with a large following. Her ministry supports humanitarian efforts around the globe. She is also an accomplished author with several best-sellers on the New York Times list.

I love Joyce Meyer! Her message is always so positive and upbeat, and she talks in real-world terms that speak to where women are "at" spiritually, emotionally and psychologically.

I like Marianne Williamson too, and for the same reasons.

Thanks for starting this thread, Vicky!

I used to love watching Oprah, but no more. While I believe she's done wonders for helping women believe in themselves, there are some things about her, and her show, that I just can't "do" anymore.
