Fireside Wisdom with Childless Elderwomen is a series of quarterly webinars I host with an inspiring panel of childless elderwomen ranging from their late 50s to their mid-70s (I am fifty-nine-and-a-half!) The webinars are public, free, open to all and you are very welcome to join us whatever age you are – we have noticed that people from their 20s to their 80s usually attend.
We meet each Equinox and Solstice for these lively truth-telling sessions (usually a lot of laughter too!) and our next one is coming up on Wednesday 20th December – the Winter Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere and the Summer Solstice in the Southern Hemisphere.
For December’s session, we are gathering around the Zoom Fire to unpack ‘The Power of the Role Model’ for those of us ageing without children. Who are they? Where the heck are they? How do we find them? How do we become them? And why is all this so important?!
As this is a webinar, neither your voice nor face will be seen or be part of the recording; if you do use the chat function, your zoom user name will be visible in the chat, but the chat transcript does not form part of the recording. There is an anonymous Q&A session at the end for you to ask your questions, and if you have any questions/issues/areas you would particularly like us to explore, you can mention that when you register, or email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please join me, Jody Day, and my wonderful #NomoCrone guests (Nomo=not mother + crone is not an insult!) Our panel are a mixture of unpartnered and partnered women, and some also hold other intersectional identities too. You can find out more about each of the panellists below here: “Who are the NomoCrones“.
