Give the gift of inspiration, advice, and intergenerational friendship from a richly diverse group of trailblazing women from 50-103 years old

A rich and multilayered tapestry of interviews, conversations, intimate photographs, and more, Collective Wisdom celebrates both the achievements and insights of our elders, and also the way in which bonds between women build community and support. These interviews conducted by other women—daughters, friends, colleagues— highlight the power of shared multigenerational kinship, especially important in trying times. So sit back and listen, to the ups and to the downs. Understand a different perspective, and the power of another woman’s experiences. And know that when she says Don’t leave this world without doing something you love, it is the gift of a lived truth. To own and to share.
