As women who were born in the 50s, 60s and even in the 70s, we wanted to take over the world.
Unlike our mothers, (who worked in very precarious jobs or could not have access to the working market), we wanted to participate in the organization of everything.
We wanted to be engineers, teachers, doctors, farmers, artists, drivers, pilots, taxi drivers, writers, lecturers, politicians, managers, presidents, and a lot more.
But we did not do it well enough, our society put a glass ceiling over us, that we did not know how to see and/or break, and some daily obligations that we did not know how to delegate or could not do it.
We believed that our partners would be up to the task of any project launched by two people, but this was not the case. Although many of our partners collaborated, which meant a great effort for them, in most of the cases, they had done so from the background.
They are there for us when we need them, but we need them when we do not resist anymore.
We, the ladies who are now 50, 60 and 70 years old, see positively how the generations that follow us has advanced. However, they continue to be the pillars of the houses and they are the ones who must put out the fire; men just help to unhook the fire extinguisher, sometimes.
As retired women, although we do a lot of activities, life has given us a certain health at our retirement and we are willing to help those women who are now experiencing the time where it seems they don’t have time for absolutely anything.
That’s why this application was created, from women who help women. Intergenerational sorority.
And, in addition to this, the geographical mobility of the new generation must be added as an issue. Some of our daughters who live far away receive little help from the people around them to put out these fires, so they need their new neighbors to help them. And the girls who come from abroad and are alone and also need help.
