Antony said of Cleopatra, Age cannot wither her, nor custom stale/Her infinite variety. Shakespeare’s sentiment can be applied to the women profiled in Great Second Acts, who refused to be defined by the dates on their birth certificates. Their lives are testimony that one can be feisty after fifty, and to those who think otherwise, in the words of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, I dissent. Marlene Wagman-Geller, author of Once Again to Zelda and Behind Every Great Man, presents a fascinating collection of biographical vignettes of dozens of older women who have excelled, inspired and achieved.
Learn how these women changed their respective fields of art, politics, science, mathematics, media, literature, activism, education, and more. From actresses, yoga teachers and folk artists to business women, prime ministers, monarchs and authors, these exceptional women will illustrate that women can achieve anything, no matter their age.
