Going beyond stereotypes - both negative and positive - on aging, it is important to focus on individual as well generational life experiences. The aim is to focus on some aspects of the processes of aging of women who were young in the seventies and who face the present phase of their lives without "models" and who become aware of contradictions, losses and gains. The more we proceed in our lives, the more questions increase and answers become uncertain.

Keywords: Women, Moving to Aging, Uneasiness, Incertainty, Openess to the Present Stage, The Experience of Being Grandmothers
