I recently met a woman who is 53 years old and lost her job, unmarried, and lives in Albuquerque, NM. She has not been able to find a job. Perhaps it is her age - who knows. Do you have any web sites, literature, any connection to help her get a job in today's job market which tends to want young, beautiful women?

Please help and send any literature if you have any available. Thanks. - R. Lucero

Thanks for your note to FEMINIST.COM and I'm sorry to hear about your acquantaince. You should suggest that she contact:

1.) The Grey Panthers, founded by Maggie Kuhn. Their phone # is 202-466-3132 and their address is: Gray Panthers, 2025 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Suite 821, Washington, DC 20006.

2.) The Older Women's League, which has offices in many places (there might event be one in Albuquerque, NM) and a national office in Washington, DC (202-783-6686).

These groups can certainly help you directly or direct her to someone who can. They are great organizations.

Thanks for being a good friend and good luck to her.
