In “The Seasoned Woman Speaks,” she gives first hand, anecdotal guidance regarding complex issues that women confronts. With over 12 million women who are Baby Boomers in the country today, over the age of 50 there was a broad swath of ground to cover.

Dr. Theda Palmer is the ultimate Seasoned Woman. Her intention is to infuse an actuate estimation of who the Seasoned Woman is into our culture, and the tide is turning.

Dr. Palmer is jointly raising the awareness levels among the woman themselves and changing perception of the over 50 segment in our society. Long gone are the days of the senior citizen today’s older women are a whole new breed; they are not your average grannies!

We are no longer fading gently into the night as we ages no one is putting us out to pasture.”
