The Ethel From AARP is a free digital newsletter that publishes every second and fourth Wednesday of the month. As part of AARP's long-time commitment to serve those over 50, this publication focuses on and celebrates women who weren't born yesterday. The newsletter that champions the idea of older women owning their age is named after the incredible AARP Founder Ethel Percy Andrus. She once said, "old age is not a defeat, but a victory, not a punishment, but a privilege." And we couldn't agree more. The Ethel's aim is to empower women as they reinvent what it means to age. So, let's smash the stereotypes about growing older and own the conversation! The Ethel will help women live their greatest lives by offering the best stories related to sex, health, beauty, career, and ageism in every single issue. it's created by women for women, with a voice that's positive, inclusive and, at times, brutally honest. So subscribe today and follow us on Facebook.
