Voices Of Older Women:
What They Want To Say… Why You’re Not Listening
By Arloa Jane Walter
6 x 9 in; 156 pages
A book about the stories of older women, “Voices Of Older Women: What They Want To Say… Why You’re Not Listening," by Arloa Jane Walter, has just been published and released by Carneros Press.
“Voices Of Older Women” is a revealing book about what older women think about life and the rapidly changing world around them. It explores why they hold back and why their adult children don’t want to know what’s really going on. “Voices Of Older Women” tells the truth about these older women—that they are natural problem solvers, teachers, holders of life stories and keepers of secrets. But often times they are also lonely and reluctant to ask for help.
“'Voices Of Older Women’ is all about the view from behind the eyes of our older mothers and grandmothers and showcases women ranging in age from 50 to 95 years old. It’s crystal clear about the needs of these older women and the need for a communication revolution,” said Author Arloa Jane Walter, in the book’s introduction. “This is an unprecedented time in our history. The information age has enabled us to witness everything going on. We are called upon to help many serious causes… A call to work on communication between the generations may seem small in comparison, but I believe it is the most important of all.”
Arloa Jane Walter was born in Wisconsin, raised in Minneapolis, Minnesota and then lived in the San Francisco Bay Area for most of her adult life. She earned a bachelor’s degree in Behavioral Sciences from the College of Notre Dame in Belmont, Calif. and a Masters of Social Work degree in Social Welfare from the UC Berkeley. She is a wife, mother of three sons and a grandmother of seven. As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, she has worked with the older population in all settings. Arloa Walter has also started an ongoing chronicle of these issues with her “Voices Of Older Women” blog at www.voicesofolderwomen.blogspot.com.
