Summary
  • Feminist women bequeath to us a powerful critique of our society's obsession with beauty and impossible body ideals. Having refused makeup, high heels, and short skirts in their youth, these women are now entering the most stigmatized stage in a woman's life - old age. As she becomes the "older woman," the feminist's rejection of beauty standards and her ability to locate self-worth is being challenged. How will feminists respond to the issues raised in this phase of their lives? By confronting the issues unique to older women in our culture and society, these authors redress the neglect and isolation experienced within contemporary feminism and gerontology
  • Ultimately, the goal of the book is to inspire the aging woman to more easily embrace the "older other" within her
