New studies show that women are less happy now than they were 40 years ago.
They show that as women get older, they get more sad.
Some women are fighting back and stepping outside their comfort zones to be happier and more empowered.
One group of women that are in something called the Ladies Explorer Club is doing something they've never done before.
"My family said, 'Kathy, try and be the first one out and get it over and done with," said one woman.
"Just remember, the more you over think it the harder it's going to be. Think of this as fun. You can do it," said another woman.
They are getting ready to jump out of a plane from 10,000 feet up.
Michele Rapp is the found of the Ladies Explorer Club.
"I didn't want to wait for a cancer diagnosis to start living my life," said Rapp.
The women say that their adventures are like therapy.
"They'll stand by you. If one is scared, they'll be like 'hey, I'm scared too, but I'm going to do it," said one woman.
"My husband had passed away of cancer, and so it was like a year and a half and I needed to get back out," said another woman.
They are stepping out of their comfort zones and doing something new.
"Put yourself a little bit out on that ledge and you'll find out what you can do. You'll be surprised," said Rapp.
The women have been in hot air balloons, repelled through hills and even tried dog sledding.
"Everybody's fears are different and we're all there to support each other," said one woman.
That is a goal that Michele hopes all her members and other women can experience.
"Whether you go through the fear, around the fear, under, over, it doesn't matter. As long as you get through the end goal, you're going to be successful," said Rapp.
There is no cost to join. Adventures cost between $85 and $500.
Transportation, food and lodging are included in the price.
There are more than 300 members in the Ladies Explorer Club.
Michele's long term goal is to start these clubs as franchises in cities across the country.
