Description
A powerful and moving treatise on the surprises of aging from an influential feminist writer and activist who thinks beyond stereotypes The older I get, the more intensely I feel about the world around me. Gloria Steinem has been an eloquent and outspoken voice for women's rights and equality for more than four decades. In Doing Sixty & Seventy she addresses an essential concern of people everywhere-and especially of women: the issue of aging. Whereas turning fifty, in her experience, is "leaving a much-loved and familiar country," turning sixty means "arriving at the border of a new one." With insight, intelligence, wit, and heartfelt honesty, she explores the landscapes of this new country and celebrates what she has called "the greatest adventure of our lives." While appreciating everybody's experiences as different, Steinem sees these years as charged with possibilities. Dealing with stereotypes and the "invisibility" that often accompany a woman's senior years can be as liberating as it is frustrating. It frees women as well as men to embrace that "full, glorious, alive-in-the-moment, don't-give-a-damn yet caring-for-everything sense of the right now." This ebook features an illustrated biography of Gloria Steinem including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author's personal collection.
