    the age women...

    Would you please rewrite the following in bold? It's confusing.

    Foe instance, when the women of the World War 1 generation were thirty (the age women born during the Korean War now were), only 3 percent of them had ever suffered a severe depression, while by the time the women born during the Korean War period had turned thirty, 60% of them had had an episode of depression---a twentyfold difference.

    Thank you.

    Re: the age women...

    '(that is, when they were the same age as the women who were born during the Korean War are now)'
