Is 29 ‘Over-the-Hill For Women?’

Retired Executive Challenges New Study

Darlene Quinn, a former retail executive who forged a new career as a novelist when she was in her 70s, is distressed by the new study that concluded women feel like they're getting old when they're a mere 29, while men don't feel their age until they're 58. A quarter of women surveyed in the study, done by funeral company Avalon Funeral Plans, said they felt like they were over-the-hill when they found their first gray hairs, while men said age didn't sink in with them until their sex lives were affected. Quinn believes that the secret to feeling young is to ignore the media and plot your own path.
