Paths to Fulfillment

Women's Search for Meaning and Identity

Ruthellen Josselson

  • Presents the true life stories of a special cohort of baby boomer women who were the first to take advantage of new possibilities for women and, in doing so, created the sea change in the roles they could take on in the world
  • Explores the types of paths this generation of women were able to follow over 35 years, and where they are now as a result of these choices
  • Links the choices women make in their early 20s to the shaping of their entire adult lives
  • Shows how not all women achieve fulfillment in late midlife, and the reasons why
