Who is the Maga Woman? Written by Angela Counsel Over the past few months I have found myself wondering where I fit in society. I am a mid 50s, menopausal woman who still has children at school, I run a business and I certainly don’t think that I am ready for the retirement village yet. But at my age I actually could move into a retirement village, I can get insurance through Aust. Pensioners Insurance and most corporate marketers would consider that my opinion doesn’t count because they direct their marketing to either women a 15 years younger or 15 years older than me. After speaking to quite a few women who are of a similar age to me I realised that I was not alone feeling like this. There seems to be a segment of society who has been forgotten. This sent me on a quest to find out more. If we go way back to Greek mythology, there was a goddess known as the Triple Goddess (Persephone, Demeter and Hecate) which represented the stages of a woman’s life. The 3 phases were – maiden, mother and crone. The maiden phase was birth to menarche (first period), the mother phase was child birth until menopause and the crone was menopause until death. It is important to remember that in the past women lived to an average age of 45 years, had their first child at 14 and was a grandmother at around 30 years. When you understand this lifecycle you can understand why there were only 3 life phases. Life has changed a lot since then. Life has changed since our mother’s and grandmother’s generation. Women today are having their children later in life and it is not unusual for a woman to be moving into menopause at the same time as her daughter is getting her first period, this can lead to ‘interesting’ times in the household. Women today are working and running businesses well past their 60s, in fact some of the most successful women in business, politics and the arts are over the age of 50. I knew there was another stage of life that hadn’t been a part of our history, there was a stage between mother and crone and I wanted to find out if anyone had defined this. 7 Maga Women Magazine
