A new (freeing) label – Queenager

Good Day, God!

Such a fun morning! I stumbled on a fairly new site called NOON. The creator is Eleanor Mills who was a creative editor at the Sunday Times (London) for 20+ years. She has created — or maybe is just publicizing the new term for women — Queenager. No age limit as you can see by looking at Queen Elizabeth.

Here is a quote from an interview she did with Sheryl Sandberg after she stepped down from META.

hQueenagers is our new moniker for women in midlife – moving into a new chapters,
masters of our own destinies.
Seeing this time as an age of possibility, of a whole new start, a new phase.
We are not done, crones, walking hot flushes,
we are Queenagers, coming into our prime.
This is definitely how Sheryl wants us to see this shift for her. “I love this new narrative around older women and what we are capable of becoming,” says Sandberg.
“I’m proud to be a Queenager”.

Now, God, You know that women have been systematically disempowered. My father used to justify this by saying “with all your gifts, you would just take over — if we didn’t do this.” And, alas, I laughed. I didn’t think WELL, YES! LET’S TAKE OVER.

That is an outrageous thing to say! But, who can doubt that women would create a much different world order. Sigh, but we are just following the rules . . . trying STILL to be good little girls. In my heart I feel You are calling us to be YOUR DAUGHTERS.

QUEENS . . . not, please forbid, Princesses. Queens, if not globally, then at least in our own lives. Or more to the point, in My Own Life.
