Margit + Gina Talk TueNighters

ICYMI: We hosted a virtual walk-through of our new #TueNighters community to give folks a sampling of what's inside. We were thrilled to have Mighty Networks founder and CEO Gina Bianchini pop in for a quick chat and share her thoughts on all things TueNighters + Mighty.

Gina was so approachable, wicked-funny, and a fantastic example of what the TueNighters community is all about: Providing a safe space for our thriving network of women, whose jam is helping each other navigate this thing called midlife, together.

You can catch the full virtual tour on our YouTube Channel, linked here: https://bit.ly/3nEsyjc

Why Is Perimenopause Still Such a Mystery?

We made The New York Times :

"Newsletters and online communities like TueNight and The Black Girl's Guide to Surviving Menopause are gaining traction with tens of thousands of readers"

With sites like Elektra Health, The Woolfer, and Stacy London's State of Menopause, it's a movement, y'all! ✊

Over 1 billion women around the world will have experienced perimenopause by 2025. But a culture that has spent years dismissing the process might explain why we don’t know more about it.

This week's #HonoraryTueNighter is songwriter and musician Viv Albertine — guitarist in the hugely influential female punk band The Slits. A confidante of the S*x Pistols and the Clash, she was a key player in British punk culture.

The Slits broke up in 1982 and, after a hiatus of twenty-five years, Viv's first solo album, The Vermillion Border, was released in 2012 to great critical acclaim.

At 67, she's charted a course through motherhood, divorce and surviving cervical cancer 🙏 and she's #JustGettingStarted - Viv is currently working on a collab for a limited television series based on her two memoirs detailing her upbringing in the 70's and rise in punk music!

GRRRRRL, KEEP BUCKING THE SYSTEM! 🤘

This week's featured #TueNighter is the AH-MAZING Alison Cornyn, a 53 year-old Brooklyn-based artist, teacher, mother of two teenage daughters, and tireless social justice activist!

Her latest work with the "Incorrigibles Project" is incredibly compelling: Drawing on the personal narratives of young women (ages 12-18) incarcerated in the U.S. (1904-1975) to investigate the history and present state of youth justice and social services for girls.

In total #GenX fashion, 55 year-old director, producer, and writer Justine Bateman examines visceral reactions (and comments) she's about her face and wrote a book about it!

In "FACE: One Square Foot Of Skin" she examines just how complicated it is for women to get older, both in and out of the spotlight.

Long story short: She has ZERO EFFS to give about what people think about her face - WE JUST LOVE THAT!🔥

Our fabulous TueDo List Editor has done it again! Margaret recently stumbled upon these pretty little things and has us all #OBSESSED about Subu Slippers:

"They are warm without making my feet sweat, so comfortable I forget that I’m even wearing them, and when I do look down at my feet, the happy Yayoi Kusama-esque dots make me smile."

Doesn't she look ADORABLE! And there's even a foldable pair of these outdoor slippers you can throw into your travel bag - learn more, here: https://bit.ly/3uQ8TiH

As #GenX women, we are committed to shedding the stigma about aging - #perimenopause and #menopause are at top of mind! It's good to know long-time community health advocate and #HonoraryTueNighter Denise Pines has got our backs!

Recently, she sat down with us and answered our top 5 questions about #perimenopause: She was super-approachable and shared hella-important information with us!

Check out her video interview, here: https://tuenight.com/we-have-5-questions-on-menopause-video/

Women may know menopause is coming — but two out of five women still don’t know what changes, exactly, we should be expecting, according to a recent AARP survey of women over 50. Or when. Or what to do about them. That’s a lot of uncertainty about something that will happen to every single per...

Our Story

We’re telling tales and spilling the secrets of Gen-Xers and middle age on Tuesday nights.

Why Tuesday? It’s an easy night for a drink with a friend. It’s a quiet minute at 10pm to steal a moment for yourself. The night you dream about your second act. TueNight is your night. Sign up for our newsletter, the TueDo List: Every week (on Tuesday’s, natch) we deliver a small, handcrafted batch of great links, profiles of women over 40 and stories by top-notch writers. And be the first to hear about our live events. Which brings us too...

Join us at “TueNight Live”: We host live - and now virtual! - storytelling events around a single theme - sex, breakups, health, money, bodies, fails, first jobs, second acts, nostalgia, family, aging and more. Of course, we also drink cocktails, nosh on good food, and chat. It’s not so much networking as it is connecting with a brand new friend over 40 — how often do we get to do that?

Enjoy stories on our website: TueNight.com. Find the great stories you’ve heard at our live events as well as many more stories from women just like you.

For your listening enjoyment this evening. I find it interested how her voice/vocal range starts out higher--more girly and sweet, but then switches to her deeper range--lower, full- bodied woman range. Madonna's voice does this, too. Maiden/Mother/Crone/ Badass Woman who knows how to use her voice. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cN6rS2M3JLA Please enjoy.
My 12 year old has lost her fu***ng mind. She just came into my office to ask for help with a pdf file for a project...I told her the pdf doesn't work the way she wants it to work...like my real world experience with pdf files that I use and send, all day, every day. She proceeded to tell me to f**k off (yes, the words came out of her mouth). I yelled back that she should also f**k off (I know, not good Mom behavior) so she slammed the door and I could see her through the window flip me off. What do I do with that? And how long am I making the excuse that she's going through puberty in the middle of a pandemic and hasn't left the house in months? FFS.
POETRY! Maybe it can't save the world, but, boy, it sure can express complicated thoughts about the gifts and burdens of being human in a beautiful way. All that is to say: POETRY TONIGHT on Grown-Ass Lady Bedtime Stories! Stephanie Gangi will read a beautiful piece that has a lot of resonance to our times. Please join us on FB live, HERE, tonight at 8pm/ET!
OMG, I read Lauren Young's essay about Camp and now I'm totally crying. She NAILED every feeling I've ever had about Camp. I would have never made it through my teens if I hadn't found my tribe at Northeast Music Camp. And now my son is reaching the age where he may want to go...I'm a puddle.
“Beauty pageants early in their histories, some dating back to the 1920s, barred women of color from participating. Even after organizations began changing their rules to accept women of all races, there was still a lingering frustration and opposition to join.”
Anyone see the HBO documentary called Jane Fonda in Five Acts? I found it fascinating. Very well done. I learned a lot about her I never knew and came away with a deep respect of her. Intelligent, passionate, compassionate, self-reflective and now putting her authentic self first. Inspiring. I highly recommend it!
To go along with all the other 90's memories...
Hi all, I can't use my two tickets for Courtney Barnett at Celebrate Brooklyn @ Prospect Park next Wednesday. Let me know if you want them! ($40 each) Her latest album, Tell Me How You Really Feel, is brilliant and tackles everything from Internet trolls to #Metoo. Even if you can't go to the show I highly recommend checking it out. Lori xx
I think I can get down with this.
What the actual Eff? Am I missing something here? This is crazy!
And this popped up on my feed.....can we say Georgia O’Keefe?
Speaking of Fleabag... When you meet the unbelievably talented and hilarious Phoebe Waller-Bridge, you give her a wiener. 🌭🙂 If you've seen her incredible show, Fleabag, you know why. If you haven't... Get. On. It! P.S. She told me I was her heroine. What??!! Day made. 🙂
