A woman fights back against widespread narrow-minded concepts of old age
Never have the elderly felt so young; never have they been so active and at the same time looked so good. On the one hand, that is. On the other hand, however, bestselling author Patricia Clough rightly notes, "Years ago, we women rose up and hit out at a world that thought that we were inferior because of our sex. Nowadays we are dealing with a society that denies us our merits because we are old."
On the Pleasure of Being an Older Woman tells of women who have refused to be satisfied with spending their old age in a rocking chair by the fireplace; of women who have managed to reject the popular myths and prejudices concerning old age and start a completely new phase of their lives, in the process impressively showing what life could belike in our later years.
