Great Second Acts: In Praise of Older Women by Marlene Wagman-Geller EPUB
Empowering biographies of older women in history
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 50. 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 women of a certain age 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, folk artists to business women, prime ministers, monarchs, and authors, this group of exceptional women will illustrate that women can achieve anything, no matter their age. Readers will find biographies of influential women such as Prime Minister Margert Thatcher, chef Julia Child, Mother Teresa, feminist Gloria Steinem, actress Rita Moreno, Judge Judy Sheindlin, and many more; empowering quotes from strong women who refused to be kept down; and motivational, inspirational, and educational stories of older women.
Written in an accessible narrative style, readers of all ages will enjoy Wagman-Geller's entertaining storytelling prose of these remarkable women. An excellent gift for students, mothers, sisters, or friends, Great Second Acts will endure and delight.
