Dear Friends,

Around here we think every day is Women's Day, and here are some female-centric culture bits that have us jazzed this week:
Absolutely loved Juliann'e Moore's performance in Gloria Bell; can't wait to see season four of Sharon Horgan's Catastrophe (read this article calling her the "Queen of Difficult Women) which comes out next week; just discovered the pleasures of The Cut's podcast,  The Cut on Tuesdays, and are looking forward to catching the new documentary about genius Elena FerranteFerrante Fever despite some mixed reviews. We are devotees! Next read: Brainpicking Maria Popova's new book Figuring. And don't miss  this list of 60 Free to Stream Movies for Women's History Month.

Raging Gracefully Podcast: Infidelity
We launched the second season of our podcadcast, (R)aging Gracefully!

(R)aging Gracefully, hosted by Nina Collins and Hillary Richard, is a podcast for women over 40 who want to tackle sex, changes in their bodies, divorce, dating and everything else, with humor, passion, and complete candor. You can find us by searching "raging gracefully" wherever you get your podcasts. 

This week's episode tackles infidelity and features an interview with  Wednesday Martin author of,  Untrue: Why Nearly Everything We Believe About Women, Lust, and Infidelity Is Wrong and How the New Science Can Set Us Free. It's a 2-parter, so be sure to subscribe after you listen and then the second episode will be delivered directly to your device :)
Constipation. There, We Said It. 
Why We Should Be Strength Training
(and How to Get Started) 
Kelly Dwyer's take on strength training may just sell you on exercise! 
Woolfer Reads
Rachel Cline’s brilliant third novel The Question Authority, about a pedophilic teacher from the narrator’s childhood, perfectly captures the zeitgeist of liberal Brooklyn in the 1970s and tells a story that intersects (in complicated and thought-provoking ways)with the contemporary #metoo movement.  Hillary Richard says "Cline’s writing is so engaging and the characters so finely drawn that you don’t want the book to end."
Woolfer Wins
Cocnut X Oil was created by Woolfer Silvia Baldini and we're psyched to FINALLY have coconut oil in the Woolfer Shop! It comes in 3 flavors, Moist Chocolate Cake, Leather & Spice and Fresh Cut Grass and is free of parabens, petroleum, silicon, and glycerin. Perfect for sensual massage!
Woolfer Travel
Six Woolfers so far are headed to to Joshua Tree in CA April 11-14, 2019. We'll be hiking the park at dawn, indulging in sound baths, tarot card readings, and doing some reflective writing and general girfriend lounging. All meals and activities are covered in the one price, and you can see the full itinerary and purchase tickets here
Woolfer of the Week: Jennifer Maisel
What does the group mean to you?
"Frankly, finding so many women who are going through life and encountering the same issues I’m facing alleviates the loneliness that I think has always been part of my core being.  The value of the genuine helpfulness and support of each other – and even the battles – it reaffirms my faith in how we, as humans, are essentially lifted up by connection, thoughtfulness and love."
In Case You Missed It
