I'm writing a feature for the women's pages of a national newspaper in response to recent research which shows that women struggle more than men with life after retirement.

Men start to enjoy new hobbies and are happy to relax at home, but women are more likely to worry about lack of income and social life. I am looking to interview three retired ladies who have had this experience. They would need to be photographed at their convenience, and would be paid a small fee on publication. Please contact me for more information with a few details about yourself: email@example.com
